Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 6:22-29.

[After Jesus had fed the five thousand men, his disciples saw him walking on the sea.] The next day, the crowd that remained across the sea saw that there had been only one boat there, and that Jesus had not gone along with his disciples in the boat, but only his disciples had left.
Other boats came from Tiberias near the place where they had eaten the bread when the Lord gave thanks.
When the crowd saw that neither Jesus nor his disciples were there, they themselves got into boats and 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 signs but because you ate the loaves and were filled.
Do not work for food that perishes but 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."

"This is the work of God, that you believe in the one he sent"

I bow down before you, O Bread of Angels, With deep faith, hope and love, And from the depths of my soul I worship you Though I am but nothingness. I bow down before you, O hidden God, And love you with all my heart. The veils of mystery hinder me not at all; I love you as do your chosen ones in heaven. I bow down before you, O Lamb of God Who take away the sins of my soul, Whom I receive in my heart each morning, You who are my saving help.
