Summary/Abstract: The article deals with the study of the sixth invocation of the Lord’s Prayer „And lead us not into temptation" prompted by the last book of Pope Francis, When you pray, you say: Our Father. This Invocation has always been a subject of study since the time of the Church Fathers and the early writers. In this respect, the author, referring to the prevalent attitudes of particular Church Fathers and writers, gives his view of this ancient problem according to which God is the one who introduces man to temptation. At the beginning of the article, the author in a brief presentation gives some information on the Lord’s Prayer; then he moves on to offer an overview starting from biblical tradition and the notion of temptation in Holy Scripture through ecclesiastical tradition to the doctrines of the last two Popes: Benedict XVI and Francis.
