Lifting up his eyes to heaven, Jesus prayed saying:Â â€œI ask not only on behalf of these, but also on behalf of those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one. As you, Father, are in me and I am in you, may they also be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me. The glory that you have given me I have given them, so that they may be one, as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may become completely one, so that the world may know that you have sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me. Father, I desire that those also, whom you have given me, may be with me where I am, to see my glory, which you have given me because you loved me before the foundation of the world.
Â â€œRighteous Father, the world does not know you, but I know you; and these know that you have sent me. I made your name known to them, and I will make it known, so that the love with which you have loved me may be in them, and I in them.â€

Thank you Father Kieran.
I will read the Book of Joy because your sermon was great on reflection of deep friendships.
I remember Father Fulton at New Years Eve reading Dickens to some parishioners at St Mary Magdalene. God Bless
