Lost in Translation? Pope Ponders an Update to Lord's Prayer

Pope Francis Questions Traditional Translation Of Lord's Prayer

According to the BBC, Pope Francis suggested changing the wording of "lead us not into temptation", saying the translation cannot be accurate since God does not lead humans to sin.

According to the Pontiff, on the basis of translation of prayer in English and several other languages, you might think that "God chooses to enter us into temptation or not". "A father quickly helps those who are provoked into Satan's temptation".

He added that the phrase used by the French, or similar wording, should then be implemented around the globe.

Pope Francis has expressed concerns about a traditional translation of the Lord's Prayer, an ancient prayer that Jesus Christ taught his disciples and is repeated by Christians around the world today.

"That is not a good translation", the pope said in a Wednesday interview with an Italian television station.

In September, Pope Francis changed the Code of Canon Law to allow national bishops' conferences to make the liturgies more understandable to the people they serve.

The French Catholic Church officially adopted the newly translated version of "Our Father" on December 3 and Francis is hoping that the rest of the world could follow suit, Fox News noted.

The real meaning of the prayer, Francis continued, is "when Satan leads me into temptation, give me a hand".

The prayer asks God to "lead us not into temptation". The Pope claims God does not lead you into temptation.

"It is not God who tempts us into sin but the enemy of human nature".

He also noted how the church in France had adapted the prayer.

The Lord's Prayer, which is memorized by millions of Christians across the world, appears in the New Testament of the Bible.
