Staying Focused Each Week
We recommend using the Weekly Guide for Daily Prayer each week to follow the movements of the readings and to stay focused and reflective each week. Until the beginning of Lent, we will be reading from Mark's Gospel each day. Notice everying Jesus says and does. This is how we become attracted to him. We notice that, while the religious leaders are asking "Who is this?" the evil spirits are saying, "We know who you are." We notice that Jesus is received and welcomed by the poor, the sick and by sinners. This is good news for us in our everyday journey.
Sometimes it is difficult to renew or even reconnect in our relationship with God. This simple reflection offers suggestions for how we might return home to the God who loves us - without ever leaving home.
This can help all of us reflect on each part of the Mass and how we can enter into this powerful prayer more deeply.
Praying with the Church during Ordinary Time
Here are the Collects for the upcoming weeks of Ordinary Time.
What is this site about?
Special religious holidays and seasons are wonderful, and many of our festivities and traditions spring from Advent and Christmas, or Easter and Lent.
The rest of our liturgical year is simply called Ordinary Time. While the "ordinary" really comes from the word ordinal because these weeks are counted (e.g.15th Week of Ordinary Time) it also reminds us of the everyday ways we connect with God.
With this website, we hope to offer ways to find the sacred in our everyday lives and to deepen our faith during times when we don't have the traditions of special seasons.
