Lesson
Lesson from the first letter of St Peter the Apostle
1 Pet 4:7-11.
Beloved: Be prudent and watchful in prayers. But above all things have a constant mutual charity among yourselves: for charity covers a multitude of sins. Be hospitable to one another without murmuring. According to the gift that each has received, minister it to one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. If anyone speaks, let it be as with words of God. If anyone ministers, let it be as from the strength that God furnishes; that in all things God may be honored through Jesus Christ our Lord.

11
Alleluia
Alleluia, alleluia.
Ps. 46:9.
V. The Lord reigns over all the nations, God sits upon His holy throne. Alleluia.
John 14:18
V. I will not leave you orphans; I go away and I come to you, and your heart shall rejoice. Alleluia.
 


GOSPEL
Continuation of the Holy Gospel according to John
R. Glory be to Thee, O Lord.
John 15:26-27; 16:1-4.
At that time, Jesus said to His disciples: When the Advocate has come, Whom I will send you from the Father, the Spirit of truth Who proceeds from the Father, He will bear witness concerning Me. And you also will bear witness, because from the beginning you are with Me. These things I have spoken to you that you may not be scandalized. They will expel you from the synagogues. Yes, the hour is coming for everyone who kills you to think he is offering worship to God. And these things they will do because they have not known the Father nor Me. But these things I have spoken to you, that when the time for them has come you may remember that I told you.

Secret
May this pure sacrifice cleanse us, O Lord, and impart to our minds the strength of heavenly grace.
Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.

Post Communion
We who have been filled with heavenly gifts beseech You, O Lord, grant us to continue giving thanks to You.
Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.
