*Ordinary Time

It always seems a bit strange that this part of our liturgical year – 28 weeks – doesn’t have a specific name. It's just known as “the season after Pentecost" or “Ordinary Time.” In this case, rather than meaning common or mundane, "ordinary" means "in an ordered sequence" because the Sundays of this season are numbered from the First Sunday after Pentecost to the Last Sunday after Pentecost.

Regardless of what it is called, many extraordinary things will happen during “the long green season” as the Holy Spirit continues to guide our lives. The peace of the Lord be with you during Ordinary Time.
