Ordinary Time Is Not Ordinary

John 10:10 : “I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.”

We are now in Ordinary Time according to the Church calendar. Ordinary Time occurs outside of special Church seasons, like Easter or Advent, in which specific aspects of the mystery of Christ are celebrated. But Ordinary Time is far from “ordinary.” All time is God’s time. The General Norms for the Liturgical Year and the Calendar declares that the days of Ordinary Time "are devoted to the mystery of Christ in all its aspects." That’s pretty exciting. But it’s even more exciting that all time is God’s, and it’s in the dynamics of everyday life, with its challenges as well as satisfactions, that we are to come to consistently experience and manifest God’s presence and action. The promise of God is that we can. The calling of God is that this be our practice.
