TODAY'S GOSPEL: JUNE 8: JOHN 17: 11-19
John 17: 11 - 1911And 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.12While I was with them, I kept them in thy name, which thou hast given me; I have guarded them, and none of them is lost but the son of perdition, that the scripture might be fulfilled.13But now I am coming to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they may have my joy fulfilled in themselves.14I have given them thy word; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.15I do not pray that thou shouldst take them out of the world, but that thou shouldst keep them from the evil one.16They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.17Sanctify them in the truth; thy word is truth.18As thou didst send me into the world, so I have sent them into the world.19And for their sake I consecrate myself, that they also may be consecrated in truth.
