Back to Ordinary Time

Yesterday was Pentecost, which concludes the Easter season. We’re back to ordinary time, which, in some ways, is more challenging than the other liturgical seasons since there isn’t a specific focus–we’re living our lives day to day.

Which is, really, the challenge of being a Catholic: we have to live every day according to our faith, even when there isn’t anything particularly special going on to focus our attention. The call to holiness isn’t too do spectacular things (usually), it’s to live a daily, ordinary life of holiness.

Here’s to ordinary times and ordinary holiness!
