ORDINARY TIME (in a most extraordinary time): The season of the church year called "Ordinary Time" but also known as the "Sundays after Pentecost" (from Pentecost to Advent, the longest season of the Christian year) has begun. From ten thousand feet, the Christian year appears divided almost in half: about six months of holy seasons (Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Eastertide), and about six months of Ordinary Time. Like a pendulum swinging back and forth, or a pair of lungs breathing in and out, the church alternates between these two movements each year: high holidays and everyday life, the joys of celebration and the grunt work of growth.
What might we be if only we tried? What might we become if only we'd listen?
Only the person who has experienced it can believe what the love of Jesus Christ really is.
(Bernard of Clairvaux)
