Making Ordinary Time Less Ordinary
Ordinary time is not “humdrum” or boring; it’s just a different rhythm.
The highlights of the liturgical calendar are Easter and Christmas. Ordinary time is about the points in between, focusing on the life of Christ. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops tells us that Ordinary Time is a time for growth and maturation.
So, how can we make Ordinary Time a more spiritual time? Here are a few ideas:
· Take your Bible fireside. There is something about a campfire that is perfect for meditation. Read one of the Gospels, and let the Holy Spirit, who first came to us in fire, lead you in prayer.
· Get into a rhythm of prayer. The myParish App on your mobile phone offers some appropriate prayers, and our website offers daily reading and prayer.
· Ditch the electronics for a day. Head outside. Have the neighbors over for dessert. Give the dog a bath. Play. Wander. Read. Take a nap. Enjoy the quiet, and listen for God’s presence in the midst of your daily life.
· Visit Catholic attractions. While you are on the road, find a Catholic attraction or two to visit, such as a shrine or grotto. This doesn’t mean you have to forgo a trip to the water park or skip mini-golf; just plan on one more stop that reminds us that the Catholic faith is big and bold and beautiful, and is expressed in many loving ways.
Ordinary Time is not meant to be boring or mundane. Enjoy it as a time to move closer to Christ, because in Him we live and move and have our being.
