Much of the Church year is taken up with the life of Christ: Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, and Easter. The rest of the year is called ‘Ordinary Time’. Despite not having any particular theme, Ordinary Time is far from dull or empty. This is the time when we try to put into action in our lives what we have seen in the seasons of the year: a time full, not of great events, but of steady growth. The high altar frontal and vestments are now green. This is the colour of the natural world around us, which, unlike the grey of concrete, is constantly growing and alive. So the Church is never still, but always growing in depth of understanding, strength of faith, and depth of love. It is in the ordinary times of life that our faith becomes real, as we allow it to saturate every part of our lives. Green surrounds us as soon as we step outside, and in Ordinary Time we discover that God surrounds us too. He is present, not just at the great feasts and special seasons, but everywhere and at every time   This  means  that  God’s  presence  is not  rare  and surprising,  but constant and ordinary. Or perhaps it means that the ordinary times are made special, because God is in them.
