Entrance Antiphon
Your merciful love, O God, we have received in the midst of your temple. Your praise, O God, like your name, reaches the ends of the earth. Your right hand is filled with saving justice.


First Reading: Genesis 32:22-32

A reading from the Book of Genesis

In those days:
Jacob arose at night and took his two wives,
his two maids, and his eleven children,
and crossed the ford of the Jabbok.
He took them and sent them across the stream,
and likewise everything that he had.
And Jacob was left alone,
and a man wrestled with him until the breaking of the day.
When the man saw that he did not prevail against Jacob,
he touched the hollow of his thigh;
and Jacob’s thigh was put out of joint as he wrestled with him.
Then he said, “Let me go, for the day is breaking.”

But Jacob said, “I will not let you go
unless you bless me.”

And he said to him, “What is your name?”

And he said, “Jacob.”

Then he said,
“Your name shall no more be called Jacob, but Israel,
for you have striven with God and with men,
and have prevailed.”

Then Jacob asked him,
“Tell me, I pray, your name.”

But he said, “Why is it that you ask my name?”
And there he blessed him.

So Jacob called the name of the place Peniel, saying,
“For I have seen God face to face,
and yet my life is preserved.”
The sun rose upon him as he passed Penuel,
limping because of his thigh.
Therefore to this day,
the Israelites do not eat the sinew of the hip
which is upon the hollow of the thigh,
because he touched the hollow of Jacob’s thigh
on the sinew of the hip.

The Word of the Lord


Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 17: 1.2-3.6-7.8 & 15 (R. see 15a)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. In justice I shall behold your face.

O Lord, hear a cause that is just;
pay heed to my cry.
Turn your ear to my prayer:
no deceit is on my lips.

From you may my justice come forth.
Your eyes discern what is upright.
Search my heart and visit me by night.
Test me by fire, and you will find no wrong in me.

To you I call; for you will surely heed me, O God.
Turn your ear to me; hear my words.
Display your merciful love.
By your right hand, you deliver from their foes
those who put their trust in you.

Guard me as the apple of your eye.
Hide me in the shadow of your wings
As for me, in justice I shall behold your face;
when I awake I shall be filled with the vision of your presence.

R/. In justice I shall behold your face.

Alleluia, alleluia.
I am the good shepherd, says the Lord;
I know my own, and my own know me.

Gospel: Matthew 9:32-38

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew

At that time:
Behold, a mute demoniac was brought to Jesus.
And when the demon had been cast out,
the mute man spoke;
and the crowds marveled, saying,
“Never was anything like this seen in Israel.”

But the Pharisees said,
“He casts out demons by the prince of demons.”

And Jesus went about all the cities and villages,
teaching in their synagogues
and preaching the gospel of the kingdom,
and healing every disease and every infirmity.
When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them,
because they were harassed and helpless,
like sheep without a shepherd.
Then he said to his disciples,
“The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few;
pray therefore the Lord of the harvest
to send out laborers into his harvest.”

Communion Antiphon
