they have kept your word

“I revealed your name to those whom you gave me out of the world. They belonged to you, and you gave them to me, and they have kept your word. Now they know that everything you gave me is from you, because the words you gave to me I have given to them, and they accepted them and truly understood that I came from you, and they have believed that you sent me.” (JN 17: 6-8) 

“They have kept your word”—this makes us different from the world: “those whom you gave me out of the world.” We belong to Our Lord, who “came from the Father.” We keep His word, and we put His word into action in our lives. With His word and the assistance of the Holy Spirit, we will know better how to serve. 

“I will ask the Father and he will give you another Advocate to be with you always.” (Gospel acclamation)
