Pope Francis said he would like to see a change to the The Lord's Prayer — also known as "Our Father." 

The pope said in an interview with Italian TV station TV2000 that the current wording of one of the prayer's lines is not a good translation, according to the BBC.

The prayer reads "lead us not into temptation." Instead, Pope Francis told the TV station the line should read "do not let us fall into temptation" to reflect that God does not lead humans to sin. 

"A father does not do that, a father helps you to get up immediately," he said, according to the report.
