PRAISE GOD AND GERMANY NO LESS! LOT'S OF PUSH BACK FROM UNUSUAL SOURCES THESE DAYS, NO?
German bishops reject pope suggestion to tweak Lord's Prayer
BERLIN – Roman Catholic bishops in Germany say they've debated
Pope Francis' suggestion to tweak the translation of the Lord's Prayer,
but will leave it unchanged. France recently changed its translation of
"lead us not into temptation" to "don't let me fall into temptation,"
which Francis has suggested was better. He told Italy's TV2000 last
month that a father would never push a son into sin, and "what pushes
you to temptation is Satan." But the German Bishops' Conference said
Thursday there were strong "philosophical, exegetical, liturgical and,
not least, ecumenical" reasons to leave it unchanged. They say the line
speaks of "the trust to be carried and redeemed by almighty God."
