John 6 : 16 - 23

Chapter 6

16Now when evening came, His disciples went down to the sea,
17got into the boat, and went over the sea toward Capernaum. And it was already dark, and Jesus had not come to them.
18Then the sea arose because a great wind was blowing.
19So when they had rowed about three or four miles, they saw Jesus walking on the sea and drawing near the boat; and they were afraid.
20But He said to them, "It is I; do not be afraid."
21Then they willingly received Him into the boat, and immediately the boat was at the land where they were going.
22On the following day, when the people who were standing on the other side of the sea saw that there was no other boat there, except that one which His disciples had entered, and that Jesus had not entered the boat with His disciples, but His disciples had gone away alone--
23however, other boats came from Tiberias, near the place where they ate bread after the Lord had given thanks--

And Glory be to God forever.

John 6 : 24 - 33

Chapter 6

24when the people therefore saw that Jesus was not there, nor His disciples, they also got into boats and came to Capernaum, seeking Jesus.
25And when they found Him on the other side of the sea, they said to Him, "Rabbi, when did You come here?"
26Jesus answered them and said, "Most assuredly, I say to you, you seek Me, not because you saw the signs, but because you ate of the loaves and were filled.
27Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you, because God the Father has set His seal on Him."
28Then they said to Him, "What shall we do, that we may work the works of God?"
29Jesus answered and said to them, "This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He sent."
30Therefore they said to Him, "What sign will You perform then, that we may see it and believe You? What work will You do?
31Our fathers ate the manna in the desert; as it is written, "He gave them bread from heaven to eat."'
32Then Jesus said to them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, Moses did not give you the bread from heaven, but My Father gives you the true bread from heaven.
33For the bread of God is He who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world."

And Glory be to God forever.

Liturgy Gospel

Paulines Epistle

Paul, the servant of our Lord Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, appointed to the Gospel of God.
A reading from the Epistle of our teacher Paul to the Ephesians .
May his blessings be upon us.
Amen.

Ephesians 2 : 19 - 3 : 10

Chapter 2

19Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God,
20having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone,
21in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord,
22in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.

Chapter 3

1For this reason I, Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus for you Gentiles--
2if indeed you have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which was given to me for you,
3how that by revelation He made known to me the mystery (as I have briefly written already,
4by which, when you read, you may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ),
5which in other ages was not made known to the sons of men, as it has now been revealed by the Spirit to His holy apostles and prophets:
6that the Gentiles should be fellow heirs, of the same body, and partakers of His promise in Christ through the gospel,
7of which I became a minister according to the gift of the grace of God given to me by the effective working of His power.
8To me, who am less than the least of all the saints, this grace was given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ,
9and to make all see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the ages has been hidden in God who created all things through Jesus Christ;
10to the intent that now the manifold wisdom of God might be made known by the church to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places,

The grace of God the Father be with you all.
Amen.

Catholic Epistle

A Reading from Epistle 1 of St. John .
May his blessing be upon us.
Amen.

1 John 5 : 10 - 20

Chapter 5

10He who believes in the Son of God has the witness in himself; he who does not believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed the testimony that God has given of His Son.
11And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.
12He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
13These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God.
14Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.
15And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.
16If anyone sees his brother sinning a sin which does not lead to death, he will ask, and He will give him life for those who commit sin not leading to death. There is sin leading to death. I do not say that he should pray about that.
17All unrighteousness is sin, and there is sin not leading to death.
18We know that whoever is born of God does not sin; but he who has been born of God keeps himself, and the wicked one does not touch him.
19We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one.
20And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.

Do not love the world or the things in the world.
The world passes away, and its desires; but he who does the will of God abides forever.
Amen.

Acts of the Apostles

The Acts of our fathers the apostles, may their blessings be with us.

Acts 20 : 1 - 12

Chapter 20

1After the uproar had ceased, Paul called the disciples to himself, embraced them, and departed to go to Macedonia.
2Now when he had gone over that region and encouraged them with many words, he came to Greece
3and stayed three months. And when the Jews plotted against him as he was about to sail to Syria, he decided to return through Macedonia.
4And Sopater of Berea accompanied him to Asia--also Aristarchus and Secundus of the Thessalonians, and Gaius of Derbe, and Timothy, and Tychicus and Trophimus of Asia.
5These men, going ahead, waited for us at Troas.
6But we sailed away from Philippi after the Days of Unleavened Bread, and in five days joined them at Troas, where we stayed seven days.
7Now on the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul, ready to depart the next day, spoke to them and continued his message until midnight.
8There were many lamps in the upper room where they were gathered together.
9And in a window sat a certain young man named Eutychus, who was sinking into a deep sleep. He was overcome by sleep; and as Paul continued speaking, he fell down from the third story and was taken up dead.
10But Paul went down, fell on him, and embracing him said, "Do not trouble yourselves, for his life is in him."
11Now when he had come up, had broken bread and eaten, and talked a long while, even till daybreak, he departed.
12And they brought the young man in alive, and they were not a little comforted.

The word of the Lord shall grow, multiply, be mighty, and be confirmed, in the holy Church of God.
Amen.

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
Our Lord God, Savior, and King of us all, Jesus Christ, the Living Son of God to whom be glory forever.
Amen.

John 6 : 35 - 45

Chapter 6

35And Jesus said to them, "I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.
36But I said to you that you have seen Me and yet do not believe.
37All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out.
38For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.
39This is the will of the Father who sent Me, that of all He has given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day.
40And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day."
41The Jews then complained about Him, because He said, "I am the bread which came down from heaven."
42And they said, "Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How is it then that He says, "I have come down from heaven'?"
43Jesus therefore answered and said to them, "Do not murmur among yourselves.
44No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day.
45It is written in the prophets, "And they shall all be taught by God.' Therefore everyone who has heard and learned from the Father comes to Me.


And Glory be to God forever.

The Fourteenth Day of the Blessed Month of Baramoudah

Departure of the Holy Father Anba Maximus, the Fifteenth Pope of Alexandria

      On this day, that coincides with the ninth of April, 282 A.D., the holy father Anba Maximus, 15th Pope of Alexandria, departed. This father was born in Alexandria from Christian parents who raised and educated him well. He excelled in the Greek language. Then he learned the doctrine of the church and was a man that feared God. Pope Heraclas, 13th Pope, ordained him deacon on the church of Alexandria. Then Pope Dionysius, 14th Pope, ordained him priest. Because of his advancement in virtues and knowledge, the fathers the bishops chose him for the Episcopal Chair after the departure of Pope Dionysius, and he was ordained on the twelfth of Hatour (November 9th., 264 A.D.). Shortly after his enthronement, he received a letter from the council of Antioch, which @included the grounds for excommunicating Paul of Samosata and his followers. He read it to the priests of Alexandria and issued a letter and sent it along with the letter of the council to all the cities of Egypt, Ethiopia, and Nuba. This was to warn them from the heresy of Paul of Samosata, which was abolished by the death of this heretic. Pope Maximus fought and guarded his flock, confirmed them in the faith with sermons and admonitions for seventeen years and five days, then departed in peace.

May his prayers be with us and Glory be to God forever. Amen.
