The Lord's Prayer is a common name for the Our Father
, which derives from the fact that it is the prayer that Christ taught to His disciples when they asked Him how to pray. The name is used more often today by Protestants than by Catholics, but the English translation of the Novus Ordo
Mass refers to the recitation of the Our Father as the Lord's Prayer.
Also Known As: The Our Father, Pater Noster
"Before we receive Holy Communion
at Mass, the congregation recites the Lord's Prayer together."
