Original Article

Posted By: JoniTx, 6/3/2019 4:32:08 PM

Pope Francis finally approved the changes he has long wanted to implement to the Lord's Prayer by replacing "lead us not into temptation" with "do not let us fall into temptation," reports UCatholic. (Video) "On May 22nd during the General Assembly of the Episcopal Conference of Italy, President Cardinal Gualtiero Bassetti announced the approval of a third edition of the Messale Romano," reports the outlet. The revised translation will include changes to the Lord’s Prayer and Gloria. The Lord’s Prayer will change from 'and lead us not into temptation' to 'do not let us fall into temptation.'"Pope Francis first spoke of his desire to update

Wow. It takes an act of Congress to change a few words? How about doing away with the hand shaking sign of peace, the hand raising and hand holding, and the kneeling.... I might come back

Well, the first draft had something about global warming and not building walls, so maybe we should be happy for this "revision."

Where I live in Flemish Belgium, the Lord's prayer has already undergone a recent revision. Flemish Dutch and Holland Dutch are slightly different, about like British and American English, so the way the Flemish say it was changed about a year ago to match the Holland version. Instead of "leid ons niet in bekoring" (lead us not into temptation) we now say "leid ons niet in beproeving" (beproeving means 'testing' or 'trying'). Not so different from these proposed changes.

Look for the Lord’s Prayer online in Syriac/Aramaic, the language Jesus spoke. It’s hauntingly beautiful.

Pray as though you're talking to God. First, give praise. Second, thank Him. Third, repentence. Fourth, ask a favor. Fifth, make a commitment. Those are the elements of effective prayer, per Nehemiah.

He's got a lot of chutzpah, changing the words of Christ. Well, he's changed the Catholic's church's stance on quite a few things, so why not? I'll not be standing too close to Pope Francis anytime soon, so I'll not be dodging lightening. I'll stick with the words the Lord used, that's safe and obedient.

I do not present myself as an expert so please correct me if I am mistaken, but was it not on request of one or more of the apostles to Christ, teach us how to pray, and did not our Lord Jesus Christ tell them how to pray to the Father? And if I am correct in that recollection is the Pope not presuming to correct Jesus? And if so is that not heresy? Does not every language have a word to identify the word of every language, as in NOT, or BEING etc.? Then of course there is latin, yes?

The prayer as taught by Jesus is correct and should not be changed. God tempts no one; however, “God could allow the devil to tempt us, as Jesus was led into temptation by the Spirit (Matthew 4:1) but we pray that our Father would guard and keep us from the evil one.”

Hey Pope, you might need to keep going with your edits / rewrites. "For I testify unto every man that hears the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

Jesus gave these words as an example when his disciples said, ''Teach us to pray.'' So, some latter day me pope assumes the title of editor of Holy Writ. Jesus did not choose to reply to this alteration. Yet. His answer remains to be seen, so stay tuned. Shouldn't it be more correctly titled The Disciples Prayer. Just sayin'.

The handshake business was one of the reasons I stopped going to church. I don't go to church to socialize. My daddy was a devout Catholic and went every Sunday. He just wouldn't shake hands with anyone. My aunt and her friends would go and they'd hug and kiss each other on the cheek. Takes all kinds I guess but the church lost me years ago. I had a big problem with their attitude on birth control pills.

Yeah, when the Pope changes Jesus' original Aramaic prayer, I'll get upset. Tweaking a translation of a translation in order to get as close as possible to the original does not set my hair on fire. Besides, is it more likely Jesus taught us to pray that our Father would not tempt us with evil things . . . or to pray that our Father would keep us from falling prey to those evil things? Don’t let your papal hate cloud your critical thinking skills.

It is known as the "Model Prayer" and Jesus Himself taught us how to direct our prayers to the Father through Him. Jesus is our Intercessor, not some liberation theology fraud in a Fish Hat sitting in Rome. Contrary to popular belief, Jesus spoke Aramaic, Hebrew, and possibly Latin and Greek, but definitely not Italian. Here's His original statement in Aramaic: Abwoon d’bvashmayo, nethqadash shmok. Te-the malkutokh. Nehwé tseby o-nokh, aykano d’bvash’mayo of -ba’r‘o. Habv lan lahma d’sunqonan yow-mano, Washboqlan hawbén w’kh-t’hén, aykano dof h’nan shba-qn l’hayobén.

I am NOT a fan of this current (and maybe not legitimate) Pope, but this doesn’t bother me at all. The Our Father is not being ‘changed’ but the translation clarified. I like this new translation—as I agree with a few others that God isn’t trying to lead us into temptation, but protecting us from it.

I'm sorry, I thought not falling into temptation is OUR job. Sometimes the Lord allows us to be lead to temptation to test, to teach, to humble us and to make us seek His help; things that are quite risky that we still would rather avoid--if He wills it. I'm with #28, Et ne nos inducas in tentationem, because I'll never speak Aramaic, but am learning the Latin Mass.

Until such an instruction comes across the official communications channels of the Church, it's not real. Neither Daily Wire, nor the "UCatholic" that they cite as the source, is any part of that. I'll withhold reaction to the change until it's real. Which I expect to be about the time that 'sex changes' become real.

Melania Trump had one last outfit change before she arrived home to Washington, D.C. after she and her husband's whirlwind visit across the pond.

Melania paired her minimalist navy blue midi-dress with a pair of much flashier Christian Louboutin heels that featured black and white stripes as well as splashes of color.

SAN DIEGO— A military judge on Friday refused to dismiss the murder case of a decorated Navy SEAL, but found the prosecution's meddling in defense lawyer emails troubling enough to reduce the maximum penalty he faces.Capt. Aaron Rugh said an effort to track emails sent to lawyers for Special Operations Chief Edward Gallagher violated constitutional rights against illegal searches and the right to counsel by interfering with attorney-client privilege."It hampered the defense's opportunity to prepare for trial as they became necessarily enmeshed in discovery and litigation related to the operation, thereby harming the accused's right to competent counsel," Rugh said.

He has in fact been the most transparent president in modern history.

Seventy years after its publication, George Orwell's classic dystopian novel "1984" continues to fascinate readers, in particular youngsters growing up in a social media-dominated age of increasing angst. "Some students are very shocked by it, and remain shocked by it," said Michael Callanan, an English teacher and director of the Orwell Youth Prize, which supports political expression amongst young people. "It is part of the paradox of a book being 70-years-old," he added. "I think they were taken aback by how fresh and how true to our lives today it strangely is." Written in 1948, and published the following year, "1984" depicted a chilling future world in which
