We observe Ordinary Time during January and February until Ash Wednesday. After we complete Lent and the Easter season, in early June we enter Ordinary Time again, and we observe it until the end of November when we come to the first Sunday of Advent and a new liturgical year begins.
During the ordinary Sundays and weekdays, when the color is green, the work of Redemption in Christ can impregnate the entire existence of the faith community.
Each week of Ordinary Time reminds us that Christ is the vine and we are the branches. On each Sunday and weekday, the daily Scriptures and the prayer life of the Church show us how to be his body on earth. They show us that with Christ we can be salt for the earth and light for the world.
Each day in Ordinary Time we pray for the grace of Christ so that we may build up the kingdom of God, which is “like finding a treasure buried in a field.” (Matthew 13)
In Ordinary Time we pray for the grace of Christ so that the kingdom of God may take root in us: “A sower went out to sow ... and some seed landed on good soil and produced wheat, thirty, sixty and a hundred fold.” (Matthew 13)
