Wychowanie do prawdziwie chrześcijańskiej modlitwy będzie zawsze polegało na tym, co jasno wyłożył św. Paweł w swojej olśniewającej carmen Christo: „Niech was ożywiają uczucia znamienne dla Jezusa Chrystusa” (por. Flp 2,5). Z dalszych wersetów wynika, jakie: miłość, dobroć, pokora, posłuszeństwo wobec Boga, dar z siebie. O moralność chodzi tu wtórnie (co nie znaczy: nie-istotnie), pierwszorzędnie zaś o to, by myśleć, działać i kochać jak Jezus, w Nim i dla Niego. Bo Kościół jest wspólnotą zjednoczoną na modlitwie z Jezusem.

Ratzinger shows christological specificity of Christian prayer against the background of the universal phenomenon of prayer based on existential imperative of human transcendental search for sense and longing for the Other. First of all, it consists not so much in the specific spiritual practice as a moral duty, as it has an ontological source. Jesus convinces of that on the pages of the Gospel, when He reveals the very essence of intertrinitary relations in His man’s prayer (both in its content and form) to His Father. The essential relationship between love and submission, adoratio and proskynesis, expressed by the filial communion with the Father’s will, also in the time of death, is a salutary ‘yes’ for us of God’s promises and defines what human piety actually is. Christian prayer consists in participating in the prayers of Jesus and – as such – it constitutes the foundation and essential experience of the Church.
