Liturgical Season

Ordinary Time

 

Eucharist
 

"Ordinary time does not need to be 'ordinary,' and is not somehow a 'break' from the Liturgical Year. The opposite is actually true: Ordinary Time celebrates "the mystery of Christ in all its aspects.

"Many important liturgical celebrations fall during Ordinary Time, including, Trinity, Corpus Christi, All Saints, the Assumption of Mary, and Christ the King.

"In addition, the Church continues to celebrate Saints days and other events such as The Octave of Christian Unity. The major feasts, when occurring on a Sunday, trump the regular Ordinary Time Sunday lessons and liturgy...

"We also may remember and celebrate the parts of Jesus' life that were ordinary, much like our own lives. The color of green is appropriate because it is the most ordinary color in our natural environment."


 

Opening Prayer for the 13th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Father,
You call your children
to walk in the light of Christ.
Free us from the darkness
and keep us in the radiance of your truth.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God for ever and ever. Amen

~ Pope John XXIII (1881-1963)
