The Treasure in the Royal Tower by Carolyn Keene
My love of reading started when i was young, and it gives me immense pleasure to provide books to Spread the Word Nevada, an organization that passes them on to children in the community. They are a terrific organization supporting an important cause. If your local I encourage you to check them out. For those living further a field, look in your own community, their may already be a similar program in place. And if not, you can always help start one.
Myself, I go out on the weekends and
shop thrift store and bulk book lots to rescue books and donate them. Sometimes Ill find a book I remember reading when I was young and will read it again before passing it on.
I dont rate these books using my normal scale, instead I give most of them three stars. This isnt a Criticism of the book, simply my way of rating them as good for children.

Our Father: Pope Francis approves changes to words of Lord's Prayer, reports say
Pope Franics has approved a change to the Catholic prayer, Our Father. The General Assembly of Bishops, a few hundred of them, approved the change and the Pope has now finally approved it. God is delivered from tempting potential evil past present and to come. The conservatives in the Church are not happy. Perhaps it should stop at the place of the absurdity of it all.

The wording of 'Our Father' is to be updated.
Known as 'The Lord's Prayer', it is central in the Catholic mass and is one of the first prayers Catholic children are taught. - Sarah McDonald.
The Pope called for the new line because he believes the original portrays God in a false light - as Satan is the "one who leads you astray". The amended phrase will be used in a revised third edition of the Italian Missal - a book which includes all the texts for the celebration of Mass in the Catholic Church. It comes following 16 years of research by experts who claim to have found a mistake in the current translation. Bishops and experts have worked on improving the text from a "theological, pastoral, and stylistic viewpoint". Pope Francis pointed out that Italian bishops followed the example of French bishops in the Catholic Church. The key verse in question is 13, which, in the NIV translation, reads: "And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.
I will state, for the record, that I do not speak Italian and accept that there may be nuances to the Italian translation of which I am unaware. However, as we can surely expect, there is now going to be pressure to change the English translation as well. I oppose this and want to revisit why. Most fundamentally, there is a notion expressed by the Pope himself and others that God does not lead us into temptation. God leads us forth in life to experience and overcome these things by his grace. So the purpose of these trials and temptations for us is that we grow by facing down opposition, error and sin, and by exhibiting obedience to the commandments of God. By them we learn to master the challenges and vicissitudes of life.
