The changes were approved May 22 during the General Assembly of the Episcopal Conference of Italy by President Cardinal Gualtiero Bassetti, Catholic blog uCatholic.com reported. The changes will be printed in the coming months, according to the blog.
Two versions of this prayer are recorded in the gospels: a longer form within the Sermon on the Mount in the Gospel of Matthew, and a shorter form in the Gospel of Luke when “one of his disciples said to him, ‘ Lord , teach us to pray , as John taught his disciples.'”
PITTSBURGH (KDKA)- Pope Francis is making a change to the Lord’s Prayer . Instead of saying “lead us not into temptation,” the Pope is changing the wording to “do not let us fall into temptation.” He says the original wording makes it sound like God is leading Catholics to sin, but he says the devil is to blame.

The Lord’s Prayer appears in two of the four Gospels: Matthew (6:9-13) and Luke (11:2-4). Scholars generally believe that those two Gospel writers got the prayer from a source, never found but labeled “Q” by researchers. The wording varies, however, in Luke and Matthew .
No, not verbally. He is inspired by God , and when teaching on a matter of faith or morals, we believe he is infallible. As far as being able to speak to God , and for God to hear him, the Pope is capable of doing this in the same manner as anyone else.
When Jesus first teaches the prayer he says when you pray say ” Our Father “. All prayer has to acknowledge our need of forgiveness and our need to forgive. So it’s not so much that there would be other ways of saying it, we say those words simply because Jesus told us to.
As a result, Catholics living in the eastern half of the Roman Empire usually added the doxology while those in the western half believed the “ Our Father ” as said during today’s Mass was sufficient.

In both Matthew and Luke, Jesus is led into the wilderness by the Holy Spirit “to be tempted by the devil”. It is only two chapters later in Matthew when Jesus urges his followers to pray that they avoid the same situation, praying to God that he not lead them into temptation as Jesus was led .
“I the Lord do not change .” (Malachi 3:6) The idea of praying to change God’s will is presumptuous. It suggests that we know better than God . Jesus set the example in Gethsemane when He prayed for God’s will to be done, not His own.
Three Hail Marys is a traditional Roman Catholic devotional practice of reciting three Hail Marys as a petition for purity and other virtues. Believers recommend that it be prayed after waking in the morning, and before going to bed, following the examination of conscience at night.
The basic forms of prayer are adoration , contrition , thanksgiving and supplication, abbreviated as A.C.T.S. The Liturgy of the Hours, the seven canonical hours of the Catholic Church prayed at fixed prayer times, is recited daily by clergy, religious and devout believers.
Now Pope Francis has risked the wrath of traditionalists by approving a change to the wording of the Lord’s Prayer . Instead of saying “lead us not into temptation”, it will say “do not let us fall into temptation”. The new wording was approved by the general assembly of the Episcopal Conference of Italy last month.
