On May 22nd during the General Assembly of the Episcopal Conference of Italy, President Cardinal Gualtiero Bassetti announced the approval of a third edition of the Messale Romano. The revised translation will include changes to the Lord’s Prayer and Gloria.
The Lord’s Prayer will change from “and lead us not into temptation” to “do not let us fall into temptation.”
The Gloria will change from “Peace on earth to people of good will” to “Peace on Earth to people beloved by God.”
The changes were first proposed in April last year with the Pope arguing that the original translation was wrong as God could not possibly lead us into temptation.
Speaking to Italian broadcasters, the Pope argued this was incorrect.
He said: “It is not a good translation because it speaks of a God who induces temptation”
