    2 Cor 4:7-15

    Brothers and sisters:
    We hold this treasure in earthen vessels,
    that the surpassing power may be of God and not from us.
    We are afflicted in every way, but not constrained;
    perplexed, but not driven to despair;
    persecuted, but not abandoned;
    struck down, but not destroyed;
    always carrying about in the body the dying of Jesus,
    so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our body.
    For we who live are constantly being given up to death
    for the sake of Jesus,
    so that the life of Jesus may be manifested in our mortal flesh.

    So death is at work in us, but life in you.
    Since, then, we have the same spirit of faith,
    according to what is written, I believed, therefore I spoke,
    we too believe and therefore speak,
    knowing that the one who raised the Lord Jesus
    will raise us also with Jesus
    and place us with you in his presence.
    Everything indeed is for you,
    so that the grace bestowed in abundance on more and more people
    may cause the thanksgiving to overflow for the glory of God.


    Ps 126:1bc-2ab, 2cd-3, 4-5, 6

    R. (5) Those who sow in tears shall reap rejoicing.
    When the LORD brought back the captives of Zion,
    we were like men dreaming.
    Then our mouth was filled with laughter,
    and our tongue with rejoicing.
    R. Those who sow in tears shall reap rejoicing.
    Then they said among the nations,
    "The LORD has done great things for them."
    The LORD has done great things for us;
    we are glad indeed.
    R. Those who sow in tears shall reap rejoicing.
    Restore our fortunes, O LORD,
    like the torrents in the southern desert.
    Those that sow in tears
    shall reap rejoicing.
    R. Those who sow in tears shall reap rejoicing.
    Although they go forth weeping,
    carrying the seed to be sown,
    They shall come back rejoicing,
    carrying their sheaves.
    R. Those who sow in tears shall reap rejoicing.


    Mt 20:20-28

    The mother of the sons of Zebedee approached Jesus with her sons
    and did him homage, wishing to ask him for something.
    He said to her,
    "What do you wish?"
    She answered him,
    "Command that these two sons of mine sit,
    one at your right and the other at your left, in your Kingdom."
    Jesus said in reply,
    "You do not know what you are asking.
    Can you drink the chalice that I am going to drink?"
    They said to him, "We can."
    He replied,
    "My chalice you will indeed drink,
    but to sit at my right and at my left, this is not mine to give
    but is for those for whom it has been prepared by my Father."
    When the ten heard this,
    they became indignant at the two brothers.
    But Jesus summoned them and said,
    "You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them,
    and the great ones make their authority over them felt.
    But it shall not be so among you.
    Rather, whoever wishes to be great among you shall be your servant;
    whoever wishes to be first among you shall be your slave.
    Just so, the Son of Man did not come to be served
    but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many."


    Ordinary Time.


    2 Kgs 4:42-44

    A man came from Baal-shalishah bringing to Elisha, the man of God,
    twenty barley loaves made from the firstfruits,
    and fresh grain in the ear.
    Elisha said, "Give it to the people to eat."
    But his servant objected,
    "How can I set this before a hundred people?"
    Elisha insisted, "Give it to the people to eat."
    "For thus says the LORD,
    'They shall eat and there shall be some left over.'"
    And when they had eaten, there was some left over,
    as the LORD had said.


    Ps 145:10-11, 15-16, 17-18

    R. (cf. 16)
    The hand of the Lord feeds us;he answers all our needs.
    Let all your works give you thanks, O LORD,
    and let your faithful ones bless you.
    Let them discourse of the glory of your kingdom
    and speak of your might.
    R.The hand of the Lord feeds us;he answers all our needs.
    The eyes of all look hopefully to you,
    and you give them their food in due season;
    you open your hand
    and satisfy the desire of every living thing.
    R.The hand of the Lord feeds us;he answers all our needs.
    The LORD is just in all his ways
    and holy in all his works.
    The LORD is near to all who call upon him,
    to all who call upon him in truth.
    R.The hand of the Lord feeds us;he answers all our needs.


    Eph 4:1-6

    Brothers and sisters:
    I, a prisoner for the Lord,
    urge you to live in a manner worthy of the call you have received,
    with all humility and gentleness, with patience,
    bearing with one another through love,
    striving to preserve the unity of the spirit through the bond of peace:
    one body and one Spirit,
    as you were also called to the one hope of your call;
    one Lord, one faith, one baptism;
    one God and Father of all,
    who is over all and through all and in all.


    Jn 6:1-15

    Jesus went across the Sea of Galilee.
    A large crowd followed him,
    because they saw the signs he was performing on the sick.
    Jesus went up on the mountain,
    and there he sat down with his disciples.
    The Jewish feast of Passover was near.
    When Jesus raised his eyes
    and saw that a large crowd was coming to him,
    he said to Philip,
    "Where can we buy enough food for them to eat?"
    He said this to test him,
    because he himself knew what he was going to do.
    Philip answered him,
    "Two hundred days?' wages worth of food would not be enough
    for each of them to have a little.'"
    One of his disciples,
    Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter, said to him,
    "There is a boy here who has five barley loaves and two fish;
    but what good are these for so many?"
    Jesus said, "Have the people recline."
    Now there was a great deal of grass in that place.
    So the men reclined, about five thousand in number.
    Then Jesus took the loaves, gave thanks,
    and distributed them to those who were reclining,
    and also as much of the fish as they wanted.
    When they had had their fill, he said to his disciples,
    "Gather the fragments left over,
    so that nothing will be wasted."
    So they collected them,
    and filled twelve wicker baskets with fragments
    from the five barley loaves
    that had been more than they could eat.
    When the people saw the sign he had done, they said,
    "This is truly the Prophet, the one who is to come into the world."
    Since Jesus knew that they were going to come and carry him off
    to make him king,
    he withdrew again to the mountain alone.
