It Will Be DECADES Before Pope Francis’ Updated “Lord’s Prayer” Makes It Into English.

The U.K. Catholic Church is NOT defying the pope or Rome. They would never do that. To much to lose, especially in ‘Church of England‘ U.K.

They are just exploiting a VALID technicality.

The official prayers for all languages are contained in a Vatican-approved, language-specific missal.

The NEW Lord’s Prayer, as yet, will ONLY appear in the Italian missal. That, obviously, is not what is used in the U.K.

It takes years, if not decades, for the vernacular versions to be translated (from the Latin) and approved by the Vatican. Hence, why there will be a long, long delay before English speaking Catholics will have to re-learn the Lord’s Prayer.

But, rest assured, the pope has the right & authority to change the Lord’s Prayer.

HUGE change, but it will not be instantaneous.

It will first appear in the Italian Missal — which has yet to be published.

It will then take years before it percolates into the other Missals — especially English.

What is bothering many is that the Pope’s change will ONLY apply to the Catholic version. So, we will now have two versions of the Lord’s Prayer; the Catholic version and the non-Catholic version.

What fun.

However, as I said in my December 2018 post, I do AGREE with the pope (for a rare change).

Pope Francis Resists Temptation, For Now, To Change The “Lord’s Prayer”.

by Anura Guruge



Click for “National Catholic Register” original.



Has it ever occured to you that the “lead us not into temptation” line in the Lord’s Prayer sounds incongruous?

It is telling the Lord not to lead you into temptation! Yes, Ah!

Why would the Lord want to lead you into temptation?

But, that is basically what that line is saying.

Please Lord, do NOT lead me into temptation“.

…….

Pope Francis quite rightly thinks it just doesn’t sound right.

But, he is NOT going to change the Lord’s Prayer.

I repeat, he is NOT going to change the Lord’s Prayer.

He could, if he wanted, BUT he is NOT going to do it for now.

He just wants you to THINK about it. And I always like folks that ask others to THINK about something worthwhile.

The French have changed their translation to take out the ‘lead’. The pope likes that. So, do I.

It has all to do with translations.

Contrary to what so, so many Americans think the Bible was NOT written in English and Jesus did NOT speak English.

The English and French versions have come about through a tortured course of translations over 1,600 years. From Aramaic/Hebrew to Greek … to Latin … to colloquial Latin (i.e., Vulgate) … English/French.

It was during this process that the ‘lead us’ came about.

So, NOW you know the real story.
