3rd Week of Easter: Thursday
John Chapter: 6 Verses: 44-51
I am the living bread which has come down from heaven
Jesus said to the crowd:
‘No one can come to me
unless they are drawn by the Father who sent me,
and I will raise that person up on the last day.
It is written in the prophets:
They will all be taught by God,
and to hear the teaching of the Father,
and learn from it,
is to come to me.
Not that anyone has seen the Father,
except the one who comes from God:
he has seen the Father.
I tell you the Truth,
everybody who believes has eternal life.
I am the bread of life.
Your fathers ate the manna in the desert
and they are dead;
but this is the bread that comes down from heaven,
so that a human being may eat it and not die.
I am the living bread which has come down from heaven.
Anyone who eats this bread will live forever;
and the bread that I shall give
is my flesh, for the life of the world.’
This is the Gospel of the Lord
