1st Reading – Numbers 11:4B-15

The children of Israel lamented,
4B “Who will give us flesh to eat?

5 We remember the fish that we ate freely in Egypt; we call to mind the cucumbers, and melons, and leeks, and onions, and garlic.

6 Our life is dry; our eyes look out to see nothing but manna.”

7 Now the manna was like coriander seed, but with the color of bdellium.

8 And the people wandered about, gathering it, and they crushed it with a millstone, or ground it with a mortar; then they boiled it in a pot, and made biscuits out of it, with a taste like bread made with oil.

9 And when the dew descended in the night over the camp, the manna descended together with it.

10 And so, Moses heard the people weeping by their families, each one at the door of his tent. And the fury of the Lord was greatly enflamed. And to Moses also the matter seemed intolerable.

11 And so he said to the Lord: “Why have you afflicted your servant? Why do I not find favor before you? And why have you imposed the weight of this entire people upon me?

12 Could I have conceived this entire multitude, or have given birth to them, so that you might say to me: Carry them in your bosom, as a nursemaid usually carries a little infant, and bring them into the land, about which you have sworn to their fathers?

13 From where would I obtain the flesh to give to so great a multitude? They weep against me, saying, ‘Give us flesh, so that we may eat.’

14 I alone am unable to sustain this entire people, because it is too heavy for me.

15 But if it seems to you otherwise, I beg you to put me to death, and so may I find grace in your eyes, lest I be afflicted with such evils.”

Responsorial Psalm – Psalms 81:12-13, 14-15, 16-17

R. (2a)Sing with joy to God our help.

12 “My people heard not my voice,
and Israel obeyed me not;
13 So I gave them up to the hardness of their hearts;
they walked according to their own counsels.”
R. Sing with joy to God our help.

14 “If only my people would hear me,
and Israel walk in my ways,
15 Quickly would I humble their enemies;
against their foes I would turn my hand.”
R. Sing with joy to God our help.

16 “Those who hated the LORD would seek to flatter me,
but their fate would endure forever,
17 While Israel I would feed with the best of wheat,
and with honey from the rock I would fill them.”
R. Sing with joy to God our help.

Alleluia – Matthew 4:4

R. Alleluia, alleluia.
4 One does not live on bread alone,
but on every word that comes forth from the mouth of God.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.

Gospel – Matthew 14:13-21

13 When Jesus heard of the death of John the Baptist, he withdrew in a boat to a deserted place by himself. The crowds heard of this and followed him on foot from their towns.

14 When he disembarked and saw the vast crowd, his heart was moved with pity for them, and he cured their sick.

15 When it was evening, the disciples approached him and said, “This is a deserted place and it is already late; dismiss the crowds so that they can go to the villages and buy food for themselves.”

16 He said to them, “There is no need for them to go away; give them some food yourselves.”

17 But they said to him, “Five loaves and two fish are all we have here.”

18 Then he said, “Bring them here to me,”

19 and he ordered the crowds to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, he said the blessing, broke the loaves, and gave them to the disciples, who in turn gave them to the crowds.

20 They all ate and were satisfied, and they picked up the fragments left over– twelve wicker baskets full.

21 Those who ate were about five thousand men, not counting women and children.
