Antiphon: John 14:15-16 (Roman Missal 2010)
If you love me, keep my commandments, says the) Lord,
and I will ask the Father,
and he will send you another Paraclete,
to be with you forever.
Alleluia! (3x)

Verses: Psalm 34: 3-4, 7-8, 17-19, 22 (Book of Divine Worship)
3  O praise the Lord with me,
   and let us magnify his Name together.
4  I sought the Lord, and he heard me;
   yea, he delivered me out of all my fear.
      Repeat Antiphon (or Alleluia section)
7  The angel of the Lord tarrieth round about them that fear him,
   and delivereth them.
8  O taste, and see, how gracious the Lord is:
   blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
      Repeat Antiphon
17  The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth them,
   and delivereth them out of all their troubles.
18  The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a contrite heart,
   and will save such as be of an humble spirit.
      Repeat Antiphon (or Alleluia section)
19  Great are the troubles of the righteous;
   but the Lord delivereth him out of all.
22  The Lord delivereth the souls of his servants;
   and all they that put their trust in him shall not be destitute.
      Repeat Antiphon
