Enter content hereFIRST READING:
Dt. 8: 2-3, 14-16 "... not by bread alone does man live, but by every word
that comes forth from the mouth of the Lord."

RESPONSORIAL PSALM:
Ps. 147 "Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem." or "Alleluia."

SECOND READING:
1 Cor. 10: 16-17 "Because the loaf of bread is one, we, many though we are,
are all one body because we all partake of the one loaf."

SEQUENCE:
"Sing forth, O Zion, sweetly sing."

GOSPEL ACCLAMATION:
Jn. 6: 51-58 "I am the living bread from heaven, says the Lord; if anyone
eats this bread he will live for ever."

GOSPEL:
Mk. 14: 12-16, 22-26 "This is my body. This is my blood."


FOCUS: When we consume the bread and wine of the Eucharist we experience
Christ within us as love, and light, and strength. This is the food that
nourishes our love of God.


REFLECTION: My heaven is hidden in that small host where Jesus, my Spouse,
hides out of love. In that divine home I find life, and there, my tender
Savior listens to me, night and day. What a happy moment it is when, in
your tenderness, you come, my Beloved, and transform me into you. This union
of love, this unfathomable ecstacy, is my heaven!
St. Thйrиse of Lisieux


Sing forth, O Zion, sweetly sing

APPLYING THE READINGS TO THE LITURGY: Just as Jesus multiplied food to feed
his hungry followers, so too does God multiply our strength and talents
through the Eucharist, giving us heightened capacity to nourish the lives
around us.
Introductory Rite—
The Rite of Sprinkling with Holy Water: Make a connection between the
Eucharist and the covenant made between God and us at baptism. Or
Penitential Rite: Third, with sixth set of sample invocations.

General Intercessions—
Introduction: My sisters and brothers, let us allow ourselves to feel the
love of God. (Stretch up, look up slightly, close your eyes, and breathe
deeply. Just for a moment.)
Through this common prayer, let us ask God that the whole world perceive
the love of Christ:
• For the Holy Church of God: that the Lord guide and protect it;
• For all the peoples of the world: May the Lord guide us to peace and
harmony;
• For all our sisters and brothers in need: May the Lord strengthen us,
through his body and blood, to assist them;
• For ourselves and our community: May we live in ways that please God.

Emphasize the liturgy of the Eucharist through a special ritualized
preparation of the Altar during the preparation of the gifts.
Preface: Second preface for the Holy Eucharist
Singing the Eucharistic prayer can further emphasize this section as the
central part of our Sunday gathering. Consider using the second eucharistic
prayer for children. This prayer is full of responses for the assembly and
will involve the assembly more deeply in the liturgy.

Concluding Rite—
Prayers over the People: Third or eighteenth

Faith Formation
We may never understand God in this life, so the Eucharist is of paramount
importance to us. It gives us the grace and strength to believe something we
cannot comprehend.
Jesus' followers were fed through the miracle of multiplying bread and
fish. There was even food left over.
• What connection can we make
between this miracle and the
Eucharist?
The Eucharist is a source of hope, faith and encouragement to us who live in
a difficult world and who practice a difficult faith.
Beware, however, of letting hope become delusion. Delusion will always
keep you from seeing God.

Children's Liturgy
of the Word
A good meal is often associated with celebrations and we derive much
pleasure from sharing such a meal with each other. Discuss the idea that the
liturgy contains the most important meal of all—a meal that feeds our hearts
and helps us to experience God in our lives. And it brings us together as a
family of Christians.
An alternate theme could focus on God being like the leaven in bread,
increasing our strength and capacities. God does not change us into
different people but helps us to refine and understand ourselves.
Song suggestions:
I Was Hungry (Marchionada)
We Are Many Parts (Haugen)
