The translation of a line in the Lord’s Prayer has been changed by The Pope.

This is after he signalled that he was frustrated that it implies God might lead people into temptation.

Pope Francis approved altering the translation of the line “and lead us not into temptation” to “do not let us fall into temptation.”

UCatholic reported that the revised line will appear in the third edition of the Messale Ramano after it was approved on May 22nd during the General Assembly of the Episcopal Conference of Italy.

Pope Francis previously told Italian TV that the new translation was already being used by the Catholic Church because the original translation implies God leads humans to sin.

“Do not let me fall into temptation because it is I who fall, it is not God who throws me into temptation and then sees how I fell,” he told TV2000, an Italian Catholic TV channel in 2017.
