Mass Readings for other dates

19th Sunday in Ordinary Time
First Reading: First Kings 19: 4-8

4 and went a day’s journey into the desert, until he came to a broom tree and sat beneath it. He prayed for death: “This is enough, O LORD! Take my life, for I am no better than my fathers.”

5 He lay down and fell asleep under the broom tree, but then an angel touched him and ordered him to get up and eat.

6 He looked and there at his head was a hearth cake and a jug of water. After he ate and drank, he lay down again,

7 but the angel of the LORD came back a second time, touched him, and ordered, “Get up and eat, else the journey will be too long for you!”

8 He got up, ate and drank; then strengthened by that food, he walked forty days and forty nights to the mountain of God, Horeb.

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

2 I will bless the LORD at all times; praise shall be always in my mouth.

3 My soul will glory in the LORD that the poor may hear and be glad.

4 Magnify the LORD with me; let us exalt his name together.

5 I sought the LORD, who answered me, delivered me from all my fears.

6 Look to God that you may be radiant with joy and your faces may not blush for shame.

7 In my misfortune I called, the LORD heard and saved me from all distress.

8 The angel of the LORD, who encamps with them, delivers all who fear God.

9 Learn to savor how good the LORD is; happy are those who take refuge in him.

Second Reading: Ephesians 4: 32-5:2

32 (And) be kind to one another, compassionate, forgiving one another as God has forgiven you in Christ.

5:1 So be imitators of God, as beloved children,

2 and live in love, as Christ loved us and handed himself over for us as a sacrificial offering to God for a fragrant aroma.

Gospel: John 6: 41-51

41 The Jews murmured about him because he said, “I am the bread that came down from heaven,”

42 and they said, “Is this not Jesus, the son of Joseph? Do we not know his father and mother? Then how can he say, ‘I have come down from heaven’?”

43 Jesus answered and said to them, “Stop murmuring among yourselves.

44 No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draw him, and I will raise him on the last day.

45 It is written in the prophets: ‘They shall all be taught by God.’ Everyone who listens to my Father and learns from him comes to me.

46 Not that anyone has seen the Father except the one who is from God; he has seen the Father.

47 Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever believes has eternal life.

48 I am the bread of life.

49 Your ancestors ate the manna in the desert, but they died;

50 this is the bread that comes down from heaven so that one may eat it and not die.

51 I am the living bread that came down from heaven; whoever eats this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give is my flesh for the life of the world.”
