Scripture of the Day

Reading 1 Ex 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 desertto 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 desertwere 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 Psalm Ps 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 comethe glorious deeds of the LORD and his strengthand the wonders that he wrought.R. The Lord gave them bread from heaven.He commanded the skies aboveand opened the doors of heaven;he rained manna upon them for foodand 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 2 Eph 4:17, 20-24
Brothers and sisters:I declare and testify in the Lordthat 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.Alleluia Mt 4:4bR. Alleluia, alleluia.One does not live on bread alone, but by everyword that comes forth from the mouth of God.R. Alleluia, alleluia.Gospel Jn 6:24-35

When 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.”

    The second collection weekend of August 1st and 2nd is for Latin America and Catholic University. Diocese of Orlando parishes will hold a special collection for the Church in Latin America. Latin American Catholics are often characterized by their warm, humble, and passionate hearts. They have been blessed by a rich culture as well as natural resources. However, in these times of economic struggle, poverty and violence are still major obstacles in their daily lives. Your support helps give hope to people in the region, especially the youth who seek to live their faith. Gifts made to this Collection will fund evangelization, formation, and catechesis projects for the Church in Latin America where hardships exist such as poverty and violence and a lack of priests and trained lay leaders to help people to live their faith. The Catholic University of America, located in Washington, D.C., is the national university of the Catholic Church. Founded in 1887, CUA offers students an excellent education in a faith-filled atmosphere that is grounded in the Catholic intellectual tradition. The Collection for he Catholic University of America underwrites scholarships to assist financially deserving students in completing their education at CUA in over 50 disciplines.

Gift Shop

Gift shop hours  are every weekday from 9:00-4:00PM (except Tuesdays) and before & after each weekend Mass.
