The Holy Gospel According to John   6: 24-35

6:24 Therefore, when the crowd had seen that Jesus was not there, nor his disciples, they climbed into the small boats, and they went to Capernaum, seeking Jesus.
6:25 And when they had found him across the sea, they said to him, “Rabbi, when did you come here?”
6:26 Jesus answered them and said: “Amen, amen, I say to you, you seek me, not because you have seen signs, but because you have eaten from the bread and were satisfied.
6:27 Do not work for food that perishes, but for that which endures to eternal life, which the Son of man will give to you. For God the Father has sealed him.”
6:28 Therefore, they said to him, “What should we do, so that we may labor in the works of God?”
6:29 Jesus responded and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in him whom he sent.”
6:30 And so they said to him: “Then what sign will you do, so that we may see it and believe in you? What will you work?
6:31 Our fathers ate manna in the desert, just as it has been written, ‘He gave them bread from heaven to eat.’ ”
6:32 Therefore, Jesus said to them: “Amen, amen, I say to you, Moses did not give you bread from heaven, but my Father gives you the true bread from heaven.
6:33 For the bread of God is he who descends from heaven and gives life to the world.”
6:34 And so they said to him, “Lord, give us this bread always.”
6:35 Then Jesus said to them: “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.
