Corpus Christi (Year A)

Psalm text (Ps 147:12-13, 14-15, 19-20)

Praise the Lord, Jerusalem.

Glorify the Lord, O Jerusalem;
praise Your God, O Zion.
For He has strengthened the bars of your gates;
He has blessed your children within you.

He has granted peace in your borders;
with the best of wheat He fills you.
He sends forth His command to the earth;
swiftly runs His word.

He has proclaimed His word to Jacob;
His statutes and His ordinances to Israel.
He has not done thus for any other nation;
His ordinanaces He has not made know to them. Alleluia.


Gospel Verse (Jn 6:51)

I am the living bread that came down from heaven, says the Lord; whoever eats this bread will live forever.
