Reading 1 and// GN 32:23-33 In the course of the night, Jacob arose, took his two wives,with the two maidservants and his eleven children,and crossed the ford of the Jabbok.After he had taken them across the streamand had brought over all his possessions,Jacob was left there alone.Then some man wrestled with him until the break of dawn.When the man saw that he could not prevail over him,he struck Jacob’s hip at its socket,so that the hip socket was wrenched as they wrestled.The man then said, Let me go, for it is daybreak.”But Jacob said, I will not let you go until you bless me.”The man asked, What is your name?”He answered, Jacob.”Then the man said, You shall no longer be spoken of as Jacob, but as Israel,because you have contended with divine and human beingsand have prevailed.”Jacob then asked him, Do tell me your name, please.”He answered, Why should you want to know my name?”With that, he bade him farewell.Jacob named the place Peniel, Because I have seen God face to face,” he said, yet my life has been spared.”At sunrise, as he left Penuel,Jacob limped along because of his hip.That is why, to this day, the children of Israel do not eatthe sciatic muscle that is on the hip socket,inasmuch as Jacob’s hip socket was struck at the sciatic muscle. Responsorial Psalm and// PS 17:1B, 2-3, 6-7AB, 8B AND 15 R.

Alleluia and// JN 10:14 R.Alleluia, alleluia.I am the good shepherd, says the LordI know my sheep, and mine know me.R.Alleluia, alleluia. Gospel and// MT 9:32-38 A demoniac who could not speak was brought to Jesus,and when the demon was driven out the mute man spoke.The crowds were amazed and said, Nothing like this has ever been seen in Israel.”But the Pharisees said, He drives out demons by the prince of demons.”Jesus went around to all the towns and villages,teaching in their synagogues,proclaiming the Gospel of the Kingdom,and curing every disease and illness.At the sight of the crowds, his heart was moved with pity for thembecause they were troubled and abandoned,like sheep without a shepherd.Then he said to his disciples, The harvest is abundant but the laborers are fewso ask the master of the harvestto send out laborers for his harvest.”
