Gospel: John 17:11-19

Jesus raised his eyes to heaven and said:

‘Holy Father, 
keep those you have given me true to your name,
so that they may be one like us.
While I was with them, 
I kept those you had given me true to your name.
I have watched over them, 
and not one is lost, 
except the one who chose to be lost,
and this was to fulfil the scriptures.
But now I am coming to you
and while still in the world I say these things
to share my joy with them to the full.
I passed your word on to them, 
and the world hated them,
because they belong to the world 
no more than I belong to the world.
I am not asking you to remove them from the world, 
but to protect them from the evil one.
hey do not belong to the world 
any more than I belong to the world.
Consecrate them in the truth;
your word is truth.
As you sent me into the world, 
I have sent them into the world,
and for their sake I consecrate myself
so that they too may be consecrated in truth.’
