Pope Francis Wants To Tweak The English Wording Of The Lord's Prayer
He says he has a problem with one of the lines.
SHOW TRANSCRIPT

Pope Francis wants to change the English version of the Lord's Prayer.

At issue is the phrase "lead us not into temptation." The pope says that wording should change because it suggests God pushes people into temptation.

He says it should be something like "do not let us fall into temptation." Francis said, "It's Satan who leads us into temptation; that's his department."

The line has been questioned before. French Catholics edited the prayer because of how it came across. The French verse originally read "do not submit us to temptation." The church changed it to "do not let us fall into temptation."
