  • First Reading: 1 Kings 19:4-8

    4 And Jonathan spoke good things of David to Saul his father: and said to him: Sin not, O king, against thy servant, David, because he hath not sinned against thee, and his works are very good towards thee.
    5 And he put his life in his hand, and slew the Philistine, and the Lord wrought great salvation for all Israel. Thou sawest it and didst rejoice. Why therefore wilt thou sin against innocent blood by killing David, who is without fault?
    6 And when Saul heard this he was appeased with the words of Jonathan, and swore: As the Lord liveth he shall not be slain.
    7 Then Jonathan called David and told him all these words: and Jonathan brought in David to Saul, and he was before him, as he had been yesterday and the day before.
    8 And the war began again, and David went out and fought against the Philistines, and defeated them with a great slaughter, and they fled from his face.

  • Psalm: Psalms 34:2-3, 4-5, 6-7, 8-9

    2 I will bless the Lord at all times, his praise shall be always in my mouth.
    3 In the Lord shall my soul be praised: let the meek hear and rejoice.
    4 O magnify the Lord with me; and let us extol his name together.
    5 I sought the Lord, and he heard me; and he delivered me from all my troubles.
    6 Come ye to him and be enlightened: and your faces shall not be confounded.
    7 This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him: and saved him out of all his troubles.
    8 The angel of the Lord shall encamp round about them that fear him: and shall deliver them.
    9 O taste, and see that the Lord is sweet: blessed is the man that hopeth in him.

  • Second Reading: Ephesians 4:30-5:2

    30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God: whereby you are sealed unto the day of redemption.
    31 Let all bitterness, and anger, and indignation, and clamour, and blasphemy, be put away from you, with all malice.
    32 And be ye kind one to another; merciful, forgiving one another, even as God hath forgiven you in Christ.

    1 Be ye therefore followers of God, as most dear children;
    2 And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath delivered himself for us, an oblation and a sacrifice to God for an odour of sweetness.

  • Gospel: John 6:41-51

    41 The Jews therefore murmured at him, because he had said: I am the living bread which came down from heaven.
    42 And they said: Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How then saith he, I came down from
    43 Jesus therefore answered, and said to them: Murmur not among yourselves.
    44 No man can come to me, except the Father, who hath sent me, draw him; and I will raise him up in the last day.
    45 It is written in the prophets: And they shall all be taught of God. Every one that hath heard of the Father, and hath learned, cometh to me.
    46 Not that any man hath seen the Father; but he who is of God, he hath seen the Father.
    47 Amen, amen I say unto you: He that believeth in me, hath everlasting life.
    48 I am the bread of life.
    49 Your fathers did eat manna in the desert, and are dead.
    50 This is the bread which cometh down from heaven; that if any man eat of it, he may not die.
    51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven.
