  • 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.
