Pope Francis wants to change line of ‘Our Father’
Pope Francis wants to change the phrase “lead us not into temptation” from the Christian prayer “Our Father,” to a better translation of the widely-known prayer.
“That is not a good translation,” the pope said in an interview Wednesday, according to Reuters.
The phrase “do not let us fall into temptation,” which the Catholic Church in France has previously decided to use, would be a more appropriate alternative, Francis said. He added that the phrase used by the French, or similar wording, should then be implemented around the globe.
The prayer originated from Jesus’s language of Aramaic. It was then translated to ancient Greek, and later to Latin.
