|Gospel Acclamation||cf.Te Deum|
Εἰ ὁ κόσμος ὑμᾶς μισεῖ,
γινώσκετε ὅτι ἐμὲ πρῶτον ὑμῶν μεμίσηκεν.
εἰ ἐκ τοῦ κόσμου ἦτε,
ὁ κόσμος ἂν τὸ ἴδιον ἐφίλει·
ὅτι δὲ ἐκ τοῦ κόσμου οὐκ ἐστέ,
ἀλλ’ ἐγὼ ἐξελεξάμην ὑμᾶς ἐκ τοῦ κόσμου,
διὰ τοῦτο μισεῖ ὑμᾶς ὁ κόσμος.
μνημονεύετε τοῦ λόγου οὗ ἐγὼ εἶπον ὑμῖν· οὐκ ἔστιν δοῦλος μείζων τοῦ κυρίου αὐτοῦ.
εἰ ἐμὲ ἐδίωξαν, καὶ ὑμᾶς διώξουσιν·
εἰ τὸν λόγον μου ἐτήρησαν καὶ τὸν ὑμέτερον τηρήσουσιν.
ἀλλὰ ταῦτα πάντα ποιήσουσιν εἰς ὑμᾶς διὰ τὸ ὄνομα μου,
ὅτι οὐκ οἴδασιν τὸν πέμψαντα με.
Jesus said to his disciples:
‘If the world hates you,
remember that it hated me before you.
If you belonged to the world,
the world would love you as its own;
but because you do not belong to the world,
because my choice withdrew you from the world,
therefore the world hates you.
Remember the words I said to you: A servant is not greater than his master.
If they persecuted me, they will persecute you too;
if they kept my word, they will keep yours as well.
But it will be on my account that they will do all this,
because they do not know the one who sent me.’
