Our Father who are....

Postby navi » Tue Sep 17, 2013 7:41 am

Our Father who are in heaven, hallowed be thy name.


I have seen the phrase 'Our Father who are in heaven' written both with and without a comma after 'Father'. Would the presence of the comma make any difference? Would it make the clause non-restrictive?
Would the absence of a comma make it restrictive?


Gratefully,
Navi.

Yes, naturally.

(The questions as to which is more appropriate is, however, not an issue of grammar, so I will refrain from commenting!)
