So the pope thinks he knows better than the Lord Jesus Himself. The Lord’s Prayer is a prayer the Lord Jesus taught His disciples in Matthew 6:9-13 and Luke 11:2-4. As JPTravis pointed out Matthew 6:9-13 says, “This, then, is how you should pray…

King James Version, Matthew 6:9-13

After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as [it is] in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

This is simply a matter of interpretation which is a legitimate area for scholars. But I don’t like the pope’s REASON for modifying the interpretation and I think the pope’s REASON is an example of why he is such a piss-poor spiritual leader. You’re supposed to interpret the Bible as closely as possible to what you think the original divinely-inspired writer meant, not what you want the original writer to have meant. Duh. Does the English translation match what the Greek and/or Aramaic words say, or not? I don’t know the answer. What I do know is what this asshole pope wants is irrelevant. Leave it to the language experts to hash out. We have plenty of religious leaders trying to make Christianity more convenient already.
