The Johannine Letters

This is just one of many good translations.  It is a Catholic translation (i.e. w/imprimatur) and is used at Mass in the dioceses of the United States.  The New Revised Standard is another Catholic translation used at Mass in other English-speaking countries.  See note on page 4 of the Study Guide.  Also, see the website of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops:  usccb.org.
