*Ordinary Time

Calling this season of the liturgical year "Ordinary" means that this time is ordered rather than chaotic. So, Ordinary Time does not mean a “ho-hum time,” but is rather a time to reflect on how God intervenes in the world and brings his divine presence into the chaos of our lives. It is a time for us to break from the preparations and celebrations of other feasts and practice our faith and relationship with God in the intentional calm of the long, green season after Pentecost.

The Holy Spirit is with us throughout Ordinary Time.
