Pope Seeks to Change the "Lord's Prayer"

Never in the time that I have said the Our father did I interpret it as anything other than 'help us avoid temptation.'

Hi Cassini:  That is interesting because I have had internal conflicts on this phrase from the Lord's Prayer in English for many years.  In French, it is interpreted more or less "do not submit us to temptation" which for me had more of the connotation "do not allow us to succumb to temptation" but was still a border line question for me.  But the English was a bit more peculiar for me as the connotation was more direct that it is God who leads people into temptation and we therefore are praying that He not do so.  I guess I can see both sides of the fence, those who want to maintain constancy and avoid change (which is not a bad thing) and those whose minds desire clarity (also not a bad thing).
Mater Dei, Ora pro nobis.
