Sunday Bulletin 2018-08-12

Reading 11 KGS 19:4-8

Elijah went a day’s journey into the desert,
until he came to a broom tree and sat beneath it.
He prayed for death saying:
“This is enough, O LORD!
Take my life, for I am no better than my fathers.”
He lay down and fell asleep under the broom tree,
but then an angel touched him and ordered him to get up and eat.
Elijah looked and there at his head was a hearth cake
and a jug of water.
After he ate and drank, he lay down again,
but the angel of the LORD came back a second time,
touched him, and ordered,
“Get up and eat, else the journey will be too long for you!”
He got up, ate, and drank;
then strengthened by that food,
he walked forty days and forty nights to the mountain of God, Horeb.

Responsorial Psalm PS 34:2-3, 4-5, 6-7, 8-9

R. (9a) Taste and see the goodness of the Lord.
I will bless the LORD at all times;
his praise shall be ever in my mouth.
Let my soul glory in the LORD;
the lowly will hear me and be glad.
R. Taste and see the goodness of the Lord.
Glorify the LORD with me,
Let us together extol his name.
I sought the LORD, and he answered me
And delivered me from all my fears.
R. Taste and see the goodness of the Lord.
Look to him that you may be radiant with joy.
And your faces may not blush with shame.
When the afflicted man called out, the LORD heard,
And from all his distress he saved him.
R. Taste and see the goodness of the Lord.
The angel of the LORD encamps
around those who fear him and delivers them.
Taste and see how good the LORD is;
blessed the man who takes refuge in him.
R. Taste and see the goodness of the Lord.

Reading 2EPH 4:30—5:2

Brothers and sisters:
Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God,
with which you were sealed for the day of redemption.
All bitterness, fury, anger, shouting, and reviling
must be removed from you, along with all malice.
And be kind to one another, compassionate,
forgiving one another as God has forgiven you in Christ.So be imitators of God, as beloved children, and live in love,
as Christ loved us and handed himself over for us
as a sacrificial offering to God for a fragrant aroma.

AlleluiaJN 6:51

R. Alleluia, alleluia.
I am the living bread that came down from heaven, says the Lord;
whoever eats this bread will live forever.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.

GospelJN 6:41-51

The Jews murmured about Jesus because he said,
“I am the bread that came down from heaven, ”
and they said,
“Is this not Jesus, the son of Joseph?
Do we not know his father and mother?
Then how can he say,
‘I have come down from heaven’?”
Jesus answered and said to them,
“Stop murmuring among yourselves.
No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draw him,
and I will raise him on the last day.
It is written in the prophets:
They shall all be taught by God.
Everyone who listens to my Father and learns from him comes to me.
Not that anyone has seen the Father
except the one who is from God;
he has seen the Father.
Amen, amen, I say to you,
whoever believes has eternal life.
I am the bread of life.
Your ancestors ate the manna in the desert, but they died;
this is the bread that comes down from heaven
so that one may eat it and not die.
I am the living bread that came down from heaven;
whoever eats this bread will live forever;
and the bread that I will give is my flesh for the life of the world.”

XIX Domingo ordinario
Leccionario: 116

Primera lectura

1 Reyes 19, 4-8

En aquellos tiempos, caminó Elías por el desierto un día entero y finalmente se sentó bajo un árbol de retama, sintió deseos de morir y dijo: “Basta ya, Señor. Quítame la vida, pues yo no valgo más que mis padres”. Después se recostó y se quedó dormido.

Pero un ángel del Señor llegó a despertarlo y le dijo: “Levántate y come”. Elías abrió los ojos y vio a su cabecera un pan cocido en las brasas y un jarro de agua. Después de comer y beber, se volvió a recostar y se durmió.

Por segunda vez, el ángel del Señor lo despertó y le dijo: “Levántate y come, porque aún te queda un largo camino”. Se levantó Elías. Comió y bebió. Y con la fuerza de aquel alimento, caminó cuarenta días y cuarenta noches hasta el Horeb, el monte de Dios.

Salmo Responsorial

Salmo 33, 2-3. 4-5. 6-7. 8-9
R. (9a) Haz la prueba y verás qué bueno es el Señor.
Bendeciré al Señor a todas horas,
no cesará mi boca de alabarlo.
Yo me siento orgulloso del Señor,
que se alegre su pueblo al escucharlo.
R. Haz la prueba y verás qué bueno es el Señor.
Proclamemos la grandeza del Señor
y alabemos todos juntos su poder.
Cuando acudí al Señor, me hizo caso
y me libró de todas mis temores.
R. Haz la prueba y verás qué bueno es el Señor.
Confía en el Señor y saltarás de gusto;
jamás te sentirás decepcionado,
porque el Señor escucha el clamor de los pobres
y los libra de todas sus angustias.
R. Haz la prueba y verás qué bueno es el Señor.
Junto a aquellos que temen al Señor
el ángel del Señor acampa y los protege.
Haz la prueba y verás qué bueno es el Señor.
Dichoso el hombre que se refugia en él.
R. Haz la prueba y verás qué bueno es el Señor.

Segunda lectura

Ef 4, 30–5, 2

Hermanos: No le causen tristeza al Espíritu Santo, con el que Dios los ha marcado para el día de la liberación final.

Destierren de ustedes la aspereza, la ira, la indignación, los insultos, la maledicencia y toda clase de maldad. Sean buenos y comprensivos, y perdónense los unos a los otros, como Dios los perdonó, por medio de Cristo.

Imiten, pues, a Dios como hijos queridos. Vivan amando como Cristo, que nos amó y se entregó por nosotros, como ofrenda y víctima de fragancia agradable a Dios.

Aclamación antes del Evangelio

Jn 6, 51
R. Aleluya, aleluya.
Yo soy el pan vivo que ha bajado cielo, dice el Señor;
el que coma de este pan vivirá para siempre.
R. Aleluya.

Evangelio

Jn 6, 41-51

En aquel tiempo, los judíos murmuraban contra Jesús, porque había dicho: “Yo soy el pan vivo que ha bajado del cielo”, y decían: “¿No es éste, Jesús, el hijo de José? ¿Acaso no conocemos a su padre y a su madre? ¿Cómo nos dice ahora que ha bajado del cielo?”

Jesús les respondió: “No murmuren. Nadie puede venir a mí, si no lo atrae el Padre, que me ha enviado; y a ése yo lo resucitaré el último día. Está escrito en los profetas: Todos serán discípulos de Dios. Todo aquel que escucha al Padre y aprende de él, se acerca a mí. No es que alguien haya visto al Padre, fuera de aquel que procede de Dios. Ese sí ha visto al Padre.

Yo les aseguro: el que cree en mí, tiene vida eterna. Yo soy el pan de la vida. Sus padres comieron el maná en el desierto y sin embargo, murieron. Éste es el pan que ha bajado del cielo para que, quien lo coma, no muera. Yo soy el pan vivo que ha bajado del cielo; el que coma de este pan vivirá para siempre. Y el pan que yo les voy a dar es mi carne para que el mundo tenga vida”.

Reading 1EX 16:2-4, 12-15

The whole Israelite community grumbled against Moses and Aaron.
The Israelites said to them,
“Would that we had died at the LORD’s hand in the land of Egypt,
as we sat by our fleshpots and ate our fill of bread!
But you had to lead us into this desert
to make the whole community die of famine!”Then the LORD said to Moses,
“I will now rain down bread from heaven for you.
Each day the people are to go out and gather their daily portion;
thus will I test them,
to see whether they follow my instructions or not.”I have heard the grumbling of the Israelites.
Tell them: 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 desert
were 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 PsalmPS 78:3-4, 23-24, 25, 54

R. (24b) The Lord gave them bread from heaven.
What we have heard and know,
and what our fathers have declared to us,
We will declare to the generation to come
the glorious deeds of the LORD and his strength
and the wonders that he wrought.
R. The Lord gave them bread from heaven.
He commanded the skies above
and opened the doors of heaven;
he rained manna upon them for food
and gave them heavenly bread.
R. The Lord gave them bread from heaven.
Man ate the bread of angels,
food he sent them in abundance.
And he brought them to his holy land,
to the mountains his right hand had won.
R. The Lord gave them bread from heaven.

Reading 2EPH 4:17, 20-24

Brothers and sisters:
I declare and testify in the Lord
that you must no longer live as the Gentiles do,
in the futility of their minds;
that 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.

AlleluiaMT 4:4B

R. Alleluia, alleluia.
One does not live on bread alone,
but by every word that comes forth from the mouth of God.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.

GospelJN 6:24-35When 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 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 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 life;whoever comes to me will never hunger,and whoever believes in me will never thirst.”

Special thanks to my darling helpers, Riley and Tatum Cissell who drew the artwork for the menu which hangs on a tree by our serving table. Riley patiently drew all those blackberries but got tired filling them in, so needed some help! Tatum did a spectacular job drawing the Blackberry Naked Ombre Cake, don’t you think?
