For 19 April 2021, Monday of the third week of Eastertide, based on 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 had stayed on the other side of the lake saw that there had been only one boat there. They also saw that Jesus had not got into the boat with his disciples, but that his disciples had gone away alone. Then some boats from Tiberias came near the place where they had eaten the bread after the Lord had given thanks. So when the crowd saw that neither Jesus nor his disciples were there, they themselves got into the boats and went to Capernaum looking for Jesus.
When they found him on the other side of the lake, they said to him, â€˜Rabbi, when did you come here?â€™ Jesus answered them, â€˜Very truly, I tell you, you are looking for me, not because you saw signs, but because you ate your fill of the loaves. Do not work for the food that perishes, but for the food that endures for eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. For it is on him that God the Father has set his seal.â€™ Then they said to him, â€˜What must we do to perform the works of God?â€™ Jesus answered them, â€˜This is the work of God, that you believe in him whom he has sent.â€™
