764 "This Kingdom shines out before men in the word, in the works and in the presence of Christ."(LG 5) To welcome Jesus' word is to welcome "the Kingdom itself."(LG 5) The seed and beginning of the Kingdom are the "little flock" of those whom Jesus came to gather around him, the flock whose shepherd he is.(Lk 12:32; cf. Mt 10:16; Mt 26:31; Jn 10:1-21) They form Jesus' true family.(cf. Mt 12:49) To those whom he thus gathered around him, he taught a new "way of acting" and a prayer of their own.(cf. Mt 5- 6)

2763 All the Scriptures - the Law, the Prophets, and the Psalms - are fulfilled in Christ.(cf. Lk 24:44) The Gospel is this "Good News." Its first proclamation is summarized by St. Matthew in the Sermon on the Mount;(cf. Mt 5 - Mt 7) The prayer to our Father is at the center of this proclamation. It is in this context that each petition bequeathed to us by the Lord is illuminated:
The Lord's Prayer is the most perfect of prayers.... In it we ask, not only for all the things we can rightly desire, but also in the sequence that they should be desired. This prayer not only teaches us to ask for things, but also in what order we should desire them.(St. Thomas Aquinas, STh II-II, 83, 9)
