Pope Francis Has Changed the Lord’s Prayer

Pope Francis has made a change to Jesus’ most famous prayer. For years, Vatican officials have been studying translations of the Lord’s Prayer, and in recent months, they have decided that a mistake occurred in the current translation “from a theological, pastoral, and stylistic viewpoint.”

As a result, Pope Francis has approved changing the phrase “lead us not into temptation” into “do not let us fall into temptation.”

Speaking to reporters in Italy, Francis explained, “I am the one who falls; it’s not him pushing me into temptation to then see how I have fallen. A father doesn’t do that, a father helps you to get up immediately. It’s Satan who leads us into temptation, that’s his department.”
