Reading 3, 1Cor 10:14-22 : Breaking of the bread is a sharing in the body of christ.

 


14 Therefore, my beloved, shun the worship of idols. 
15 I speak as to sensible men; judge for yourselves what I say. 
16 The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not a participation in the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not a participation in the body of Christ? 
17 Because there is one bread, we who are many are one body, for we all partake of the one bread. 
18 Consider the people of Israel; are not those who eat the sacrifices partners in the altar? 
19 What do I imply then? That food offered to idols is anything, or that an idol is anything? 
20 No, I imply that what pagans sacrifice they offer to demons and not to God. I do not want you to be partners with demons. 
21 You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons. You cannot partake of the table of the Lord and the table of demons. 
22 Shall we provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than he?


Gospel, Jn 6:1-15 : Multiplication of the bread

 

1 After this Jesus went to the other side of the Sea of Galilee, which is the Sea of Tiber'i-as. 
2 And a multitude followed him, because they saw the signs which he did on those who were diseased. 
3 Jesus went up on the mountain, and there sat down with his disciples. 
4 Now the Passover, the feast of the Jews, was at hand. 
5 Lifting up his eyes, then, and seeing that a multitude was coming to him, Jesus said to Philip, "How are we to buy bread, so that these people may eat?" 
6 This he said to test him, for he himself knew what he would do. 
7 Philip answered him, "Two hundred denarii would not buy enough bread for each of them to get a little." 
8 One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, said to him, 
9 "There is a lad here who has five barley loaves and two fish; but what are they among so many?" 
10 Jesus said, "Make the people sit down." Now there was much grass in the place; so the men sat down, in number about five thousand. 
11 Jesus then took the loaves, and when he had given thanks, he distributed them to those who were seated; so also the fish, as much as they wanted. 
12 And when they had eaten their fill, he told his disciples, "Gather up the fragments left over, that nothing may be lost." 
13 So they gathered them up and filled twelve baskets with fragments from the five barley loaves, left by those who had eaten. 
14 When the people saw the sign which he had done, they said, "This is indeed the prophet who is to come into the world!" 
15 Perceiving then that they were about to come and take him by force to make him king, Jesus withdrew again to the mountain by himself.
