Pope Explains Twofold Supplication Within ‘Deliver Us From Evil’
What does it mean in the Lord’s prayer with the words “But deliver us from evil?” Pope Francis explained that this passage, the seventh “question” in the prayer has two supplications: to be not abandoned and to be liberated from evil.
And the Pope also explained why this part of the prayer is so vital: “There is an evil in our life, which is an incontestable presence.”
The Holy Father’s remarks came during his May 15, 2019, General Audience in St. Peter’s Square, where he continued his catechesis on the Lord’s Prayer before a crowd of pilgrims from around the world. Cool
