  • First Reading: Acts of the Apostles 8:1b-8

    1 b And at that time there was raised a great persecution against the church which was at Jerusalem; and they were all dispersed through the countries of Judea, and Samaria, except the apostles.
    2 And devout men took order for Stephen's funeral, and made great mourning over him.
    3 But Saul made havock of the church, entering in from house to house, and dragging away men and women, committed them to prison.
    4 They therefore that were dispersed, went about preaching the word of God.
    5 And Philip going down to the city of Samaria, preached Christ unto them.
    6 And the people with one accord were attentive to those things which were said by Philip, hearing, and seeing the miracles which he did.
    7 For many of them who had unclean spirits, crying with a loud voice, went out.
    8 And many, taken with the palsy, and that were lame, were healed. 

  • Psalm: Psalms 66:1-3a, 4-5, 6-7a

    1 Shout with joy to God, all the earth,
    2 Sing ye a psalm to his name; give glory to his praise.
    3 a Say unto God, How terrible are thy works, O Lord!
    4 Let all the earth adore thee, and sing to thee: let it sing a psalm to thy name.
    5 Come and see the works of God; who is terrible in his counsels over the sons of men.
    6 Who turneth the sea into dry land, in the river they shall pass on foot: there shall we rejoice in him.
    7 a Who by his power ruleth for ever.

  • Gospel: John 6:35-40

    35 And Jesus said to them: I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall not hunger: and he that believeth in me shall never thirst.
    36 But I said unto you, that you also have seen me, and you believe not.
    37 All that the Father giveth to me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me, I will not cast out.
    38 Because I came down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of him that sent me.
    39 Now this is the will of the Father who sent me: that of all that he hath given me, I should lose nothing; but should raise it up again in the last day.
    40 And this is the will of my Father that sent me: that every one who seeth the Son, and believeth in him, may have life everlasting, and I will raise him up in the last day.
