For many of us, Ordinary Time can feel “ordinary,” and not particularly special. While we thoroughly enjoy the beautiful seasons of Easter and Christmas, Ordinary Time does not elicit the same feelings.
As a result, Ordinary Time is often overlooked and not given its chance to shine.
However, this time of the Church’s year has great potential and can give us a profound insight into our own lives.
One topic for meditation during this season is to focus on the “unknown years” of Jesus’ life. The Gospel accounts focus almost exclusively on the final 3 years of Jesus’ ministry and give us hardly any details of his first 30 years.
