Acts of the Apostles 7:51-60.8:1a.


Stephen said to the people, the elders, and the scribes: «You stiff-necked people, uncircumcised in heart and ears, you always oppose the Holy Spirit; you are just like your ancestors.


   Which of the prophets did your ancestors not persecute? They put to death those who foretold the coming of the righteous one, whose betrayers and murderers you have now become.

 
   You received the law as transmitted by angels, but you did not observe it." When they heard this, they were infuriated, and they ground their teeth at him.


   But he, filled with the holy Spirit, looked up intently to heaven and saw the glory of God and Jesus standing at the right hand of God, and he said, "Behold, I see the heavens opened and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God."


   But they cried out in a loud voice, covered their ears, and rushed upon him together. They threw him out of the city, and began to stone him. The witnesses laid down their cloaks at the feet of a young man named Saul.


   As they were stoning Stephen, he called out, "Lord Jesus, receive my spirit." Then he fell to his knees and cried out in a loud voice, "Lord, do not hold this sin against them"; and when he said this, he fell asleep.

 
   Now Saul was consenting to his execution.On that day, there broke out a severe persecution of the church in Jerusalem, and all were scattered throughout the countryside of Judea and Samaria, except the apostles.

 

 

Psalms 31(30):3cd-4.6ab.7b.8a.17.21ab.


Incline your ear to me; make haste to rescue me!

Be my rock of refuge, a stronghold to save me.


You are my rock and my fortress;

for your name's sake lead and guide me.
Into your hands I commend my spirit;
you will redeem me, O LORD, O faithful God.

 

Into your hands I commend my spirit;
you will redeem me, O LORD, O faithful God.


You hate those who serve worthless idols,

but I trust in the LORD.
I will rejoice and be glad in your love,

once you have seen my misery, observed my distress.

 

Let your face shine upon your servant;
save me in your kindness.
You hide them in the shelter of your presence,

safe from scheming enemies.

 

You keep them in your abode,

safe from plotting tongues.
You hide them in the shelter of your presence,

safe from scheming enemies.

 

You keep them in your abode,

safe from plotting tongues.

 

 

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 6:30-35.


The crowd said to Jesus: «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 written: 'He 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 heaven; my Father gives you the true bread from heaven.

 
   For the bread of God is that which comes down from heaven and 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 life; whoever comes to me will never hunger, and whoever believes in me will never thirst.
