Rev Franklin Graham says the Catholic Church must be "very, very careful" in deciding whether to change the wording of the Lord's Prayer. The US evangelist spoke amid plans by Italian bishops for a new version which would read "do not abandon us to temptation" instead of "lead us not into temptation".Speaking to Fox News Channel, the 66-year-old said: "There possibly could be a translation error with that one word. I don't know.  "I'm still going to say it the way that I memorised it as a boy, that my mother taught me. "The pope may have a point, here. Let's see..." Last December, Pope Francis described the current wording as "not a good translation" - arguing Satan leads people into temptation, not God.

 

 

Church of England bishops have issued an unusual joint statement, saying that they are praying for UK politicians and "national unity" following turbulence over Brexit. Following a week which saw the Prime Minister delay a crunch vote on the EU withdrawal deal and survive a confidence vote, Anglican leaders also called for "grace and generosity". They said: "In the light of this week's turbulent events, the bishops of the Church of England pray for national unity - and courage, integrity and clarity for our politicians. "We call on the country to consider the nature of our public conversation. It is time to bring grace and generosity back to our national life. "At the heart of the Christian message is Jesus' command to love our neighbour. "This includes those with whom we agree and disagree - at home, in Europe, and further afield."
