Gospel JN 6:51-58

Jesus said to the Jewish crowds:
“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.”

The Jews quarreled among themselves, saying,
“How can this man give us his flesh to eat?”
Jesus said to them,
“Amen, amen, I say to you,
unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood,
you do not have life within you.
Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood
has eternal life,
and I will raise him on the last day.
For my flesh is true food,
and my blood is true drink.
Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood
remains in me and I in him.
Just as the living Father sent me
and I have life because of the Father,
so also the one who feeds on me
will have life because of me.
This is the bread that came down from heaven.
Unlike your ancestors who ate and still died,
whoever eats this bread will live forever.”

 

Prayers of the Faithful

Let us seek to satisfy the hunger of the Church by working for spiritual renewal and integrity of service for the benefit of all believers.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us seek to satisfy the hunger of people who are physically starving in every land and nation, especially for refugees and migrants, those who face draughts and floods, and those who cannot afford healthy food.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us seek to satisfy the hunger of all Christians as we seek unity amid division, harmony among racism, and hopelessness among the jobless. May we seek communion and love of the Eucharist for all people.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us seek to satisfy the hunger of loved ones in prison, our loved ones who bear the pain of their past actions, and those demonstrating peacefully on our streets. May we feast on justice and mercy.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us seek to satisfy the hunger of people in depression and loneliness. May the Eucharist keep us in communion with God’s fidelity and goodness. May hope satisfied all people.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us seek to satisfy the spiritual hunger of those who grieve our dead. May the Holy Spirit lift the burdens of loss and regrets of the past.  In this Mass…

We pray to the Lord.
