Sunday's Gospel




John 6:51-58
                                                                                                                       

Jesus said, “I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats of this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give for the life of the world is my flesh.”

The Jews then disputed among themselves, saying, “How can this man give us his flesh to eat?” So Jesus said to them, “Very truly, I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood have eternal life, and I will raise them up on the last day; for my flesh is true food and my blood is true drink. Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood abide in me, and I in them. Just as the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, so whoever eats me will live because of me. This is the bread that came down from heaven, not like that which your ancestors ate, and they died. But the one who eats this bread will live forever.”

We pray for healing for those who struggle with addictions, and physical and mental disabilities. Please bless our vision with compassion and love, so that this Congregation may be the hands and feet of Christ in Getty Square.  Amen

Prayer of Lament O God, you made us in your own image and redeemed us through Jesus your Son: Look with compassion on the whole human family and especially in this Episcopal Diocese of New York as we lament our past complicity in slavery, racism, and the unfair treatment of all peoples; take away the arrogance and hatred which infect our hearts; break down the walls that separate us; unite us in bonds of love; and work through our struggle and confusion to accomplish your purposes on earth; that, in your good time, all nations and races may serve you in harmony around your heavenly throne; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

We hold in our prayers: For those injured in the Genoa bridge collapse, The Rev. Canon Blake Rider, Our Presiding Bishop Michael Curry who is recovering from prostate cancer surgery, Ival Debride, Anthony Muranelli, Harriette Forster, Eve Shepard, Cecile Davis, Beverly Anthonyson, Corey Belinski, Bernice Walder, Roger Ressmeyer, Marion Eich, Carmen Hanchard, Sal Bah, Antoinette Forster, Hope  Mackey, Mamazane Xulu, Carol O’Brien, Fatima Mishk, Kimberly DeShon, Shelley Henderson, Naomi Henderson, Aida Carino, Liliana Moschetta, Tom O’Connor, Monica Harmon, Beverly Sims, Ralph Tremonte, June & Waine Kniffen, Peter Walsh, and The Rev.

Dr. Frederick Anthony Drobin, Dr. Alice Nyadoi Okoth-Ogwal, Tori Bement, and all those the world over who have died from war, terrorism, and natural disasters including flooding in Japan and wildfires in Greece, and we lament those who have died over the centuries due to slavery, lynching, racism and the unequal and unjust treatment of peoples in this country.
