One of the blogs I follow has a lovely piece today about the tremendous value of the longest season of the church year: ordinary time, these numbered Sundays after Pentecost that stretch into November. While the seemingly relentless green of the vestments can seem monotonous, there’s wisdom in the duration of this season. Michael Marsh, a priest in the diocese of West Texas, offers some worthwhile thoughts about how this season helps us learn to rest in God, and transform our everyday lives into prayer. Check out what he has to say at his blog entry “Sacred Monotony”.
What do you think? Does the long season of ordinary time help you to find your rest in God? Or do you find yourself longing for a feast that breaks the rhythm?
