First Reading: Philippians 4:4-9   (No. 740(10) on Pg 1998)

A reading from the Letter of Saint Paul to the Philippians

Brothers and sisters:
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice.
Let all people know your forbearance.
The Lord is at hand.
Have no anxiety about anything,
but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving
let your requests be made known to God.
And the peace of God, which passes all understanding,
will keep your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Finally, brothers and sisters,
whatever is true, whatever is honourable,
whatever is just, whatever is pure,
whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious,
if there is any excellence,
if there is anything worthy of praise,
think about these things.
What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, do; and the God of peace will be with you.”

The Word of the Lord



Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 34:1-2.3-4.5-6.7-8.9-10

(No. 739(5) on pg 1992)

Let us pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. I sought the Lord, and he answered me;
from all my terrors he set me free.

I will bless the Lord at all times;
praise of him is always in my mouth.
In the Lord my soul shall make its boast;
the humble shall hear and be glad.

Glorify the Lord with me;
together let us praise his name.
I sought the Lord, and he answered me;
from all my terrors he set me free.

Look toward him and be radiant;
let your faces not be abashed.
This lowly one called; the Lord heard,
and rescued him from all his distress.

The angel of the Lord is encamped
around those who fear him, to rescue them.
Taste and see that the Lord is good.
Blessed the man who seeks refuge in him.

Fear the Lord, you his holy ones.
They lack nothing, those who fear him.

R/. I sought the Lord, and he answered me;
from all my terrors he set me free.

Please stand for the Gospel

Alleluia, alleluia.
Abide in my love. He who abides in me, and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.

Gospel: John 17: 20-26   (No. 742(26) on Pg 2014)

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to John

At that time:
Jesus said, “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,
who 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
As the Father has loved me, so I have loved you; remain in my love.
