The time has come for the Son of Man to enter into his glory, and God will be glorified because of him. And since God receives glory because of the Son, he will give his own glory to the Son, and he will do so at once.
“Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.”
Almighty God, have mercy on me. Grant that I, who am constantly betrayed by my own weaknesses, may draw the breath of new life from the passion and death of your Only-Begotten Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God for ever and ever. Amen.
