From the article angela posted:
"Instead, he suggested a wider use of the new translation adopted by the French church on Dec. 3, which says, “Do not let us fall into temptation.” Presumably, the idea is that such a formula better captures the idea that when sin occurs, it’s the result of the free will of a human being, not God’s cajoling us into it."
So the pope (and many others) doesn't like the translation that sort of supports the idea that god "lead(s) us into temptation."
But he's OK with the idea that god can control us to keep us from temptation if he wants to (and we ask him).
Either way...it's up to "god."
Don't lead us into it, keep us from it -- either way takes away human will, and puts the onus on "god."
What a ridiculous argument.

Read the link I posted. It has nothing to do with internal pressure within the Holy See
