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.
