Teófilo: “We can pray the Our Father and those other prayers and hymns in the New Testament as Jews and only in this way we can experience them primarily as Christians. There’s simply no way around it. In this manner, all Catholics could and should pray like Jews.”

Except that Jews don't pray the Lord's Prayer. You are building a house of cards, Teófilo.

Uh huh.

I explained the divergences in Part II, including the ones that stop post-biblical, post-second temple ("modern") Jews to reach an intimacy with God that would allow them to call Him "Father" as Jesus did.

Perhaps if you had read the entire 3-part essay...

But hey, I can't say I blame you totally. My writing is many times long, boring, and sleep-inducing. What I mean is that you can't kindly accuse me of not having dealt with the point you raise. :-)

From the Shem Tov Matthew:
Our father in heaven
may your name be sanctified
may your kingdom be blessed
your will shall be done in heaven and on earth
give us our bread continually
forgive us the debt of our sins
as we forgive the debt of those who sin against us
do not bring us into the hands of a test
and protect us from all evil
amen
Spoken by Yah'shua a Jew, then and now and forever.
shalom b'SHEM Yah'shua HaMashiach
