Ordinary Time is a span of the Church calendar between major feasts and their seasons, occupying more than 30 Sundays each year.
A recent cartoon in our Sunday newspaper depicted an exhausted mother, sprawled in a chair surrounded by typical birthday party chaos: torn wrapping paper, balloons, toys spread everywhere. Standing next to her, a little boy with a party hat tilted on his head asks, “When’s the next birthday?”
Everything we once knew as “normal” has changed — including the ebb and flow of the church calendar: welcome to “anything but” ordinary time.
Just as most of our days are lived between the big events, so the church year is filled with more ordinary days than holidays.
