Pope Seeks to Change the "Lord's Prayer"

Actually, having lived in France, this one positive thing that Francis is doing that I can support.  

It is not the nature of God to tempt his children to sin.  That would make him somewhat of a sadist.  The change to "do not let us fall into temptation" in the Lord's Prayer, IMHO, is much more preferable theologically than "lead us not into temptation." 

Of course many point to God "hardening" the hearts of some.  But if one looks at it as hardening caused by resistance (like a callous) one can liken this hardening spoken of in the bible to a spiritual callous caused by resisting the prompting of God's Spirit or resisting His love.

I don't often agree with Francis, but here I can find common ground.
Mater Dei, Ora pro nobis.
