Changes to Lord's Prayer coming but not here

The Vatican is making changes to a well-known prayer in the coming months, and Pastor John Schuster of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Luxemburg and Holy Trinity Church in Casco says Americans will not have to worry. Pope Francis recently announced changes to the “Our Father” last week, calling it a fix to a poor English translation of the centuries-old prayer. Instead of “lead us not into temptation,” the phrase will now be “do not let us fall into temptation.” Schuster says changes were only approved by Italian churches, but that does not mean Catholic bishops around the world will not consider it for their own members in the future.

Schuster says the United States Council of Bishops would have to approve changes to the Our Father before it would become a normal part of the mass.
