Homily from the Second Sunday of Lent.

Jesus, the Prototype, reveals His prayer to the Apostles. Every rabbi would teach his disciples how to pray, but Jesus is able to give His disciples something that no other rabbi could offer. Jesus prays as the Beloved Son…Jesus teaches His disciples to pray as beloved children who have been claimed by their Father.
