Jesus raised His eyes to heaven and said…
In the Sacred Liturgical Year of the Church, this is the final week of the Easter Season.
During this week, at Holy Mass, we read the Priestly Prayer of Christ.
This prayer is recorded in John 17.
The prayer is explained in Part IV, Section 1, Chapter 3, Article 3 of the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
The Lord Jesus prays this prayer to the Father in every Holy Mass. It reveals the unfathomably intimate friendship of the Father and the Son in the Holy Spirit.
You and I are invited into this friendship.
