Pope Francis has called for a translation of a phrase about temptation in the Lord’s Prayer to be changed.
The current wording that says “lead us not into temptation” is not a good translation, because God does not lead humans to sin, he says.
He suggests using “do not let us fall into temptation” instead, he told Italian TV on Wednesday night.
The Lord’s Prayer is the best-known prayer in Christianity.
The pontiff said France’s Roman Catholic Church was now using the new wording “do not let us fall into temptation” as an alternative, and something similar should be used worldwide.
