TODAY'S GOSPEL: JUNE 7: JOHN 17: 1- 11

John 17: 1 - 11
1When Jesus had spoken these words, he lifted up his eyes to heaven and said, "Father, the hour has come; glorify thy Son that the Son may glorify thee,
2since thou hast given him power over all flesh, to give eternal life to all whom thou hast given him.
3And this is eternal life, that they know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom thou hast sent.
4I glorified thee on earth, having accomplished the work which thou gavest me to do;
5and now, Father, glorify thou me in thy own presence with the glory which I had with thee before the world was made.
6"I have manifested thy name to the men whom thou gavest me out of the world; thine they were, and thou gavest them to me, and they have kept thy word.
7Now they know that everything that thou hast given me is from thee;
8for I have given them the words which thou gavest me, and they have received them and know in truth that I came from thee; and they have believed that thou didst send me.
9I am praying for them; I am not praying for the world but for those whom thou hast given me, for they are thine;
10all mine are thine, and thine are mine, and I am glorified in them.
11And now I am no more in the world, but they are in the world, and I am coming to thee. Holy Father, keep them in thy name, which thou hast given me, that they may be one, even as we are one.
