1st Reading – ACTS 1:12-14

12 After Jesus had been taken up to heaven the apostles returned to Jerusalem from the mount that is called Olivet, which is near Jerusalem, within a sabbath day’s journey.

13 When they entered the city they went to the upper room where they were staying, Peter and John and James and Andrew, Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew, James son of Alphaeus, Simon the Zealot, and Judas the brother of James.

14 All these were persevering with one mind in prayer with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brothers.

Responsorial Psalm – Psalms 27:1, 4, 7-8

R. (13) I believe that I shall see the good things of the Lord in the land of the living.

1 The LORD is my light and my salvation;
whom should I fear?
The LORD is my life’s refuge;
of whom should I be afraid?
R. I believe that I shall see the good things of the Lord in the land of the living.
or:
R. Alleluia.

4 One thing I ask of the LORD; this I seek:
to dwell in the house of the LORD
all the days of my life,
That I may gaze on the loveliness of the LORD
and contemplate his temple.
R. I believe that I shall see the good things of the Lord in the land of the living.
or:
R. Alleluia.

7 Hear, O Lord, the sound of my call;
have pity on me, and answer me.
8 Of you my heart speaks; you my glance seeks.
R. I believe that I shall see the good things of the Lord in the land of the living.
or:
R. Alleluia.

2nd Reading – 1 Peter 4:13-16

13 Beloved: If you partake of the sufferings of Christ, rejoice that when his glory shall be revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy.

14 If you are reproached for the name of Christ, you shall be blessed: for that which is of the honour, glory, and power of God, and that which is his Spirit, rests upon you.

15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or a thief, or a railer, or a coveter of other men’s things.

16 But if as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in that name.

Alleluia – CF. John 14:18

R. Alleluia, alleluia.
18 I will not leave you orphans, says the Lord.
I will come back to you, and your hearts will rejoice.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.

Gospel – John 17:1-11A

1 Jesus raised his eyes to heaven and said, “Father, the hour has come, glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you.

2 just as you gave him authority over all people, so that your son may give eternal life to all you gave him.

3 Now this is eternal life: That they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.

4 I glorified you on earth by accomplishing the work that you gave me to do.

5 And now glorify you me, O Father, with yourself, with the glory which I had, before the world was, with you.

6 “I revealed your name to those whom you gave me out of the world. They belonged to you, and you gave them to me, and they have kept your word.

7 Now they have known, that all things which you have given me, are from you

8 Because the words which you gave me, I have given to them; and they have received them, and have known in very deed that I came out from you, and they have believed that you did send me.

9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them whom you have given me: because they are yours,

10 And all my things are yours, and yours are mine; and I am glorified in them.

11 And now I will no longer be in the world, and these are in the world, and I come to you.
