First Reading: Isaiah 6:1-4, 8

A reading from the Book of the Prophet Isaiah

In the year that King Uzziah died,
I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne,
high and lifted up,
and his train filled the temple.
Above him stood the seraphim;
each had six wings:
with two he covered his face,
and with two he covered his feet,
and with two he flew.
And one called to another and said:
“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts,
the whole earth is full of his glory.”
And the foundations of the thresholds
shook at the voice of him who called,
and the house was filled with smoke.

And I heard the voice of the Lord saying,
“Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?”

Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”

The Word of the Lord.




Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 23:2-3, 5, 6 (R.1)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. The Lord is my shepherd;
there is nothing I shall want.

Fresh and green are the pastures
where he gives me repose.
Near restful waters he leads me;
he revives my soul.

He guides me along the right path,
for the sake of his name.
You have prepared a table before me
in the sight of my foes.

My head you have anointed with oil;
my cup is overflowing.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life.

In the Lord’s own house shall I dwell
for length of days unending.

R/. The Lord is my shepherd;
there is nothing I shall want.

Please stand for the Gospel.

Alleluia, Alleluia.
I will pour clean water upon you and I will give you a new heart; a new spirit I will put within you.





Gospel: John 17:1-2, 9, 14-26

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to John.

When Jesus had spoken these words,
he lifted up his eyes to heaven and said,
“Father, the hour has come;
glorify your Son that the Son may glorify you,
since you have given him power over all flesh,
to give eternal life to all whom you have given him.

I am praying for them;
I am not praying for the world
but for those whom you have given me,
for they are yours;
I have given them your word;
and the world has hated them because they are not of the world,
even as I am not of the world.
I do not pray that you should take them out of the world,
but that you should keep them from the evil one.
They are not of the world,
even as I am not of the world.
Sanctify them in the truth;
your word is truth.
As you did send me into the world,
so I have sent them into the world.
And for their sake I consecrate myself,
that they also may be consecrated in truth.

“I do not pray for these only,
but also for those who believe in me through their word,
that they may all be one;
even as you, Father, are in me, and I in you,
that they also may be in us,
so that the world may believe that you have sent me.
The glory which you have given me I have given to them,
that they may be one even as we are one,
I in them and you in me,
that they may become perfectly one,
so that the world may know that you have sent me
and have loved them even as you have loved me.
Father, I desire that they also,
whom you have given me,
may be with me where I am,
to behold my glory
which you have given me in your love for me
before the foundation of the world.
O righteous Father,
the world has not known you,
but I have known you;
and these know that you have sent me.
I made known to them your name,
and I will make it known,
that the love with which you have loved me
may be in them, and I in them.”

The Gospel of the Lord.

Communion Antiphon.

And behold, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.
