Throughout the year, the Mystery of Christ is revealed. Beginning after the Feast of Our Lord’s Baptism, Ordinary Time focuses on Christ’s Baptism and then delves into His Preaching Ministry. The Scriptural readings at Mass focus on Jesus’ Teaching through parables and His Miracles.
Ordinary Time is intended to remind us that Jesus is with us throughout all of our daily trials and triumphs. We should be striving to reflect Jesus’ Teaching with our actions every day.
In A Treasure Chest of Traditions for Catholic Families, the first Ordinary Time is devoted to Prayer activities and habits, encouraging us to treasure the classic prayers and devotions, commit to the Rosary and the Divine Mercy as well as explore new-to-us prayers passed down to us through the intercession of great Saints. We can also work on our own spontaneous prayers from the heart and hopefully inspire our children in their own meaningful prayer-lives.
