No, Pope Francis Is Not Changing the Lord’s Prayer
This is a classic case of the pope saying something and the media distorting it.

"Newspapers and websites erupted over the weekend with headlines like:

Shame on all of them.
The pope didn’t call for any changes.
This is a classic case of the pope saying something and the media going hog-wild and completely distorting it."

Ok, so Pope Francis is not calling for the Our Father to be reworded as reported. What is is doing is ALLOWING the change, which is as bad as if he wants to change it himself. Here we have collegiality at its best, a pope allowing bishops here and bishops there to change Church teaching (communion for adultry in St America, and the Lord's prayer, the translation presided over by many popes, by the French bishops}.

What then is the role of a Pope?
Peace.....THIS Pope's role is to stir the pot - if he puts suggestive comments out there, somebody (or more) will latch on to it and either request changes or subtely make them.  (possibly) - these are the comments now about Vat 11 - it was evasive and left up to one's own discretion and what happened - confusion and error.  angeltime :advent:
