The Religion Teacher -- Ordinary Time: What Does It Mean?

1

Thanks to Jared Dees for this great video. Check out more teaching videos at The Religion Teacher.

What does Ordinary Time mean? Why is Ordinary Time called ordinary? Although it might come as a surprise, Ordinary Time is not called “ordinary” based on its level of importance. The origin of the name Ordinary Time comes from the Latin word ordinalis, which means “numbered.” Ordinary Time, which occurs between Christmas and Lent then again between Easter and Advent, signifies a numbered (or ordered) list of Sundays that anchor our daily lives in the Catholic Church.

    Thank you! Thank you! I am so happy when I find another great way to learn about our faith and then pass it along to my children.
