I have heard the grumbling of the Israelites.Tell themand In the evening twilight you shall eat flesh,and in the morning you shall have your fill of bread,so that you may know that I, the LORD, am your God.”In the evening quail came up and covered the camp.In the morning a dew lay all about the camp,and when the dew evaporated, there on the surface of the desertwere fine flakes like hoarfrost on the ground.On seeing it, the Israelites asked one another, What is this?”for they did not know what it was.But Moses told them, This is the bread that the LORD has given you to eat.” Responsorial Psalm and//www.usccb.org/bible/psalms/78and3 PS 78and3-4, 23-24, 25, 54 R.

Reading 2 and//www.usccb.org/bible/ephesians/4:17 EPH 4:17, 20-24 Brothers and sistersandI declare and testify in the Lordthat you must no longer live as the Gentiles do,in the futility of their mindsthat is not how you learned Christ,assuming that you have heard of him and were taught in him,as truth is in Jesus,that you should put away the old self of your former way of life,corrupted through deceitful desires,and be renewed in the spirit of your minds,and put on the new self,created in God’s way in righteousness and holiness of truth. Alleluia and//www.usccb.org/bible/matthew/4and4 MT 4and4B R.Alleluia, alleluia.One does not live on bread alone, but by everyword that comes forth from the mouth of God.R.Alleluia, alleluia. Gospel and//www.usccb.org/bible/john/6:24 JN 6:24-35 When the crowd saw that neither Jesus nor his disciples were there,they themselves got into boatsand came to Capernaum looking for Jesus.And when they found him across the sea they said to him, Rabbi, when did you get here?”Jesus answered them and said, Amen, amen, I say to you,you are looking for me not because you saw signsbut because you ate the loaves and were filled.Do not work for food that perishesbut for the food that endures for eternal life,which the Son of Man will give you.For on him the Father, God, has set his seal.”So they said to him, What can we do to accomplish the works of God?”Jesus answered and said to them, This is the work of God, that you believe in the one he sent.”So they said to him, What sign can you do, that we may see and believe in you?What can you do?Our ancestors ate manna in the desert, as it is writtenandHe gave them bread from heaven to eat.”So Jesus said to them, Amen, amen, I say to you,it was not Moses who gave the bread from heavenmy Father gives you the true bread from heaven.For the bread of God is that which comes down from heavenand gives life to the world.”So they said to him, Sir, give us this bread always.”Jesus said to them, I am the bread of lifewhoever comes to me will never hunger,and whoever believes in me will never thirst.”
