ROME, June 13, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — Writing in the Times Literary Supplement, Dame Mary Beard, Regius Professor of Classics at the University of Cambridge, has cast doubt on Pope Francis’s new translation of the sixth petition of the Lord’s Prayer (recently adopted by the Italian Bishops Conference).
The traditional translation (which Beard says is far closer to the Greek) is ‘lead us not into temptation.’ Pope Francis has persuaded the Italian and French Bishops Conferences to replace this with ‘do not allow us to fall into temptation.’ Beard states that the traditional version is “as close as you can get to the earliest (Greek) version we have.”
On Dec. 6, 2017, Pope Francis appeared with Fr. Marco Pozza on TV2000’s weekly program “Our Father” to talk about its sixth petition: “and lead us not into temptation.”
