But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

The Temptation to Retranslate the Lord's Prayer

Written by
Many of you have probably already heard about the Pope's call for a "better translation” of one of the verses in the Lord’s Prayer (Matt 6:13). But Anthony Esolen argues here, and rightly in my opinion, that this suggestion is misguided at best.
