Readings and Antiphons on p 485 of the Daily Missal 

Entrance Antiphon
My mouth is filled with your praise, that I may sing aloud; my lips shall shout for joy, when I sing to you, alleluia.

First Reading: Acts 8:1b-8

A reading from the Acts of the Apostles

On that day a great persecution arose
against the Church in Jerusalem;
and they were all scattered
throughout the region of Judea and Samaria,
except the apostles.
Devout men buried Stephen
and made great lamentation over him.
But Saul laid waste the church,
and entering house after house,
he dragged off men and women
and committed them to prison. 

Now those who were scattered went about preaching the word.
Philip went down to a city of Samaria
and proclaimed to them the Christ.
And the multitudes with one accord
gave heed to what was said by Philip,
when they heard him and saw the signs which he did.
For unclean spirits came out of many who were possessed,
crying with a loud voice;
and many who were paralyzed, or lame were healed.
So there was much joy in that city.

The Word of the Lord

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 66:1-3a.4-5.6-7a (R. 1)

Let us pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. Cry out with joy to God, all the earth.

Cry out with joy to God, all the earth;
O sing to the glory of his name.
O render him gloriuos praise.
Say to God, “How awesome your deeds!”

“Before you all the earth shall bow down,
shall sing to you, sing to your name!”
Come and see the works of God:
awesome his deeds among the children of men.

He turned the sea into dry land;
they passed through the river on foot.
Let our joy, then, be in him;
he rules forever by his might.

R/. Cry out with joy to God, all the earth.

Please stand for the Gospel

Alleluia, alleluia.
Every one who believes in the Son has eternal life; and I will raise him up at he last day, says the Lord.
Alleluia.

Gospel: John 6:35-40

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to John

At that time:
Jesus said to the crowds,
“I am the bread of life;
he who comes to me shall not hunger,
and he who believes in me shall never thirst.
But I said to you that you have seen me and yet do not believe.
All that the Father gives me will come to me;
and him who comes to me I will not cast out.
For I have come down from heaven,
not to do my own will, but the will of him who sent me;
and this is the will of him who sent me,
that I should lose nothing of all that he has given me
but raise it up at the last day.
For this is the will of my Father,
that everyone who sees the Son and believes in him
should have eternal life;
and I will raise him up at the last day.”

The Gospel of the Lord
