THE GOSPEL

John 6:1-15

Jesus went up on the mountain, and there he sat down with his disciples. The Jewish feast of Passover was near.

The large crowd was coming to him.
They were hungry for his words
and to get some food.
                                                                                       
There was a boy with
five loaves and
two fish.

The mysterious and
plentiful power
 of God,

who uses what we have.

They ate
more than their fill,
and so much was left over.

Lord,

Please take the gifts of our lives,
bless them, grow them,
make them
holy.

Let us use them
 to care for this needy world.


THE FIRST READING

2 Kings 4:42-44

They shall eat and there shall be some left over.

Elisha
 fed a crowd
with a few loaves.
And some was left over.

What other gifts do you give, Lord?

There’s breathing in
and breathing
 out.

And the moon at night
and the sun in
 the day.

Don’t forget gravity,
roses, and …
bugs!

Could
there ever be
 a better gift than friendship?

Ultimate Friend, you fill our lives with miracles.
Please open our miraculous eyes
to help us to see your gifts
and yourself.


THE SECOND READING

Ephesians 4:1-6

One body, one Spirit.

On
 the mountain,
with loaves and fishes,

you made
all the people
who came to you
 one

 in the sharing of
the food.

Now, through our bread and wine,
which are your body and blood,
come into us, please.
Make us one in
in the sharing
 of your
 life.
