The Western Wall Heritage Foundation gave to the media on Thursday the words of the prayer written by Pope Francis and placed between the stones of the Western Wall on Monday. The pope wrote the words of what is known in the Christian faith as the Lord’s Prayer. <br /> <br /> <img alt="Pope's Western Wall ntoe" src="" /><br /> <br /> The pope wrote<em>: "Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen. Franciscus."</em><br /> <br /> (Translated from the Hebrew translation of the pope’s original note written in Spanish.)
