Ordinary Time

After Advent and the great feasts of the Christmas season, today we return to what is known as 'ordinary time', which will continue until Lent begins on 25th February. Green vestments are worn and the green tabernacle veil is used during this season. Perhaps this colour, so often seen in the plant life of God's creation, reminds us that every day of the year - not just the great seasons and feasts - is an opportunity to grow in faithfulness to the Lord.
