Reading 1 and//www.usccb.org/bible/acts/6and8 ACTS 6and8-15 Stephen, filled with grace and power,was working great wonders and signs among the people.Certain members of the so-called Synagogue of Freedmen,Cyreneans, and Alexandrians,and people from Cilicia and Asia,came forward and debated with Stephen,but they could not withstand the wisdom and the Spirit with which he spoke.Then they instigated some men to say, We have heard him speaking blasphemous wordsagainst Moses and God.”They stirred up the people, the elders, and the scribes,accosted him, seized him,and brought him before the Sanhedrin.They presented false witnesses who testified, This man never stops saying things against this holy place and the law.For we have heard him claimthat this Jesus the Nazorean will destroy this placeand change the customs that Moses handed down to us.”All those who sat in the Sanhedrin looked intently at himand saw that his face was like the face of an angel.

Gospel and//www.usccb.org/bible/john/6:22 JN 6:22-29 [After Jesus had fed the five thousand men, his disciples saw him walking on the sea.]The next day, the crowd that remained across the seasaw that there had been only one boat there,and that Jesus had not gone along with his disciples in the boat,but only his disciples had left.Other boats came from Tiberiasnear the place where they had eaten the breadwhen the Lord gave thanks.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 menot 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.”
