John 17:1-13 (Gospel, Fathers)

1
Jesus spoke these words, lifted up His eyes to heaven, and said: “Father, the hour has come. Glorify Your Son, that Your Son also may glorify You,
2
as You have given Him authority over all flesh, that He should give eternal life to as many as You have given Him.
3
And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.
4
I have glorified You on the earth. I have finished the work which You have given Me to do.
5
And now, O Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was.
6
I have manifested Your name to the men whom You have given Me out of the world. They were Yours, 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
For I have given to them the words which You have given Me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came forth from You; and they have believed that You sent Me.
9
I pray for them. I do not pray for the world but for those whom You have given Me, for they are Yours.
10
And all Mine are Yours, and Yours are Mine, and I am glorified in them.
11
Now I am no longer in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to You. Holy Father, keep through Your name those whom You have given Me, that they may be one as We are.
12
While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Your name. Those whom You gave Me I have kept; and none of them is lost except the son of perdition, that the Scripture might be fulfilled.
13
But now I come to You, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have My joy fulfilled in themselves.
