What is Life in Ordinary Time?

As Catholics we know that the liturgical year is divided up into cycles, beginning with Advent and including Christmas, Lent, and Easter.  The parts of the year not encompassed in those cycles are known as “ordinary time.”  Most of our year is therefore spent in ordinary time — not in the anticipation and feasting of Advent and Christmas, not in the prayerful, solemnity of Lent or the joyful celebration of Easter.  Some Catholics may think of ordinary time as the “boring” part of the year, where nothing exciting happens.  I know I always have.  But the reality is that we spent most of our time in ordinary time.  As a working mother, my days more often than not, reflect the ordinary rather than the extraordinary.  With this blog I hope to reach other Catholic women just try to get through life one ordinary day at a time.
