Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 14:15-21.

Jesus said to his disciples: If you love me, you will keep my commandments.
And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate to be with you always,
the Spirit of truth, which the world cannot accept, because it neither sees nor knows it. But you know it, because it remains with you, and will be in you.
I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.
In a little while the world will no longer see me, but you will see me, because I live and you will live.
On that day you will realize that I am in my Father and you are in me and I in you.
Whoever has my commandments and observes them is the one who loves me. And whoever loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and reveal myself to him."

Latin Liturgy
“He will give you another Advocate to be with you forever.”

Holy Spirit, Lord divine, Come from heights of heav’n and shine, Come with blessed radiance bright. O consoler, wisest, best, And our soul’s most welcome guest, Sweet refreshment, sweet repose. In our labor rest most sweet, Pleasant coolness in the heat, Consolation in our woes. Light most blessed, shine with grace In our heart’s most secret place, Fill your faithful through and through. Left without your presence here, Life itself would disappear, Nothing thrives apart from you! Cleanse our soiled hearts of sin, Arid souls refresh within, Wounded lives to health restore. Bend the stubborn heart and will, Melt the frozen, warm the chill, Guide the wayward home once more! On the faithful who are true And profess their faith in you, In your sev’nfold gift descend! Give us virtue’s sure reward, Give us your salvation, Lord, Give us joys that never end!
