my future mother in law asked the following:
"Conversation here...how long has the catholic church said the Lords prayer with the for thine is the kingdom...phrase at the end?"
I've always heard " the kingdom and the power and the Glory are yours.". I'm not sure if that is what she meant or if she is redding to something new.
Is she Catholic? Protestants end the Lord's Prayer with "For Thine is the Kingdom, the Power and the Glory forever and ever." In some old biblical manuscripts it is included; in others it isn't. The Catholic version has always been that from the Matthew's Gospel. Most protestant denominations add it to the Lord's Prayer, however.
Catholics do not add to the Our Father the doxology, "For Thine is the kingdom, power, and glory, forever and ever", which is not found in the earliest manuscripts of the Gospel of Matthew. However, this doxology, in the form "For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours, now and for ever", is used in the Roman Rite Mass as revised in 1970, separated from the Lord's Prayer by a prayer,spoken or sung by the priest, that elaborates on the final petition, "Deliver us from evil." In the 1975 ICEL translation, this prayer reads: "Deliver us, Lord, from every evil, and grant us peace in our day. In your mercy keep us free from sin and protect us from all anxiety as we wait in joyful hope for the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ."
