(Worthy News) - Despite opposition from traditionalists, Pope Francis has officially approved a change to the Lord's Prayer in Matthew 6:13 that replaces "lead us not into temptation" with "do not let us fall into temptation."
The U.S. Catholic reports that the Vatican enacted the change on May 22 following 16 years of research by experts who found a mistake in the current translation "from a theological, pastoral, and stylistic viewpoint."
Pope Francis first signaled support for amending the "lead us not into temptation" part of the Lord's Prayer in 2017, arguing that it portrays God in a false light.
"A father does not lead into temptation, a father helps you to get up immediately," the pope said at the time. "It is not a good translation because it speaks of a God who induces temptation.” [ Source: Christian Post (Read More...) ]
