He has therefore suggested “do not let us fall into temptation” as a replacement for the problematic phrase.

According to Pope Francis, the Catholic Church in France was already using his suggested phrase.

“Do not let me fall into temptation because it is I who fall, it is not God who throws me into temptation and then sees how I fell,” BBC reported him as telling TV2000, an Italian Catholic TV channel.

The Lord's Prayer, according to Christian doctrine, is the template prayer Jesus Christ gave his apostles during his time on earth and it is the most widely known prayer of the religion.

The current translation is from the Latin Vulgate, a 4th-Century Latin translation of the Bible, which itself was translated from ancient Greek, Hebrew and Aramaic.
