The Italian Bishops’ Conference has announced that Pope Francis will soon approve an alteration to the wording of the Lord’s Prayer, the most ubiquitous prayer in all of Christendom given to the Faithful by Christ Himself.

“And he said to them: When you pray, say: Father, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our sins, for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation.” Luke 11:2-4 (Douay-Rheims)

The Italian Episcopal Conference announced last month that after sixteen years of careful analysis by the bishops and church experts they have produced a document outlining official changes to the Pater Noster, altering the line “lead us not into temptation” for a less ambiguous “abandon us not into temptation.” The updated third edition of the Roman Missal has now been sent to the Holy See for official approval by Pope Francis.

“They have been focusing on improving the text from a theological, pastoral and stylistic viewpoint, and on developing the presentation of the Roman Missal.”

Archbishop Gualtiero Bassetti, president of the Italian Bishops’ Conference, said the change will make the Our Father “more flexible” and “renew the ecclesiastic community,” saying its more than just a mere translation:

“Liturgical reforms are just a starting point. The renewal shall include ordained ministers, as well as the faithful. Developments like these are becoming increasingly crucial in the process of Christian initiation, in workshops and in proposals for the permanent training of the clergy.”

The changes come after Pope Francis’ comments last year around Christmas time over his desire to change the wording of the Lord’s Prayer, as “that is not a good translation,” referring to the phrase “lead us not into temptation.” He proposed a different translation should be adopted “because it speaks of a God who induces temptation.”

Explaining his reasoning, he further added that:

“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.”

The Italian Bishop’ Conference also announced a change to the beginning of the Gloria, altering the second line to “peace on earth to men beloved of the Lord.”

  2. Francis, the fake pope, the apostate, has no right to change the very words and teachings of Jesus Christ. But as a servant of Satan, what else can he do?
