“Hallowed be thy name” means that the ultimate, the mystical, the ineffable, can never be captured in human words.  Perhaps we need to learn from the Jews that, if one speaks the name of God, one is pretending that one is able to know and to define God, which is the beginning of human idolatry.  That is when we begin to create God in our own image, while pretending it is the other way around.  Perhaps” 

― John Shelby Spong

We can be good to someone a hundred times, but if we insult or harm them just once they quickly forget the hundred kindnesses and remember that one slight for a long time.  Therefore always be mindful in your exchanges with others.

We have a choice. We can live in the past and be miserable and unhappy, or we can pick ourselves up and move ahead in life. When we choose to focus forward, we can find the energy and ability to remove any obstacles that may appear to be hindering our smooth progression. If you take stock of yourself and find you may be spending time frequently reliving unhappy experiences of the past, make the decision to rid yourself of the ties that bind you to a former way of life. 

— Sir John Templeton

Jesus healed whatever He touched.  With the Holy Spirit in Him, His power as a healer transformed many people. All schools of Christianity agree on this.  All of us also have the seed of the Holy Spirit in us, the capacity of healing, transforming, and loving.  When we touch that seed, we are able to touch God the Father and God the Son.
