Sunday was the Feast of Pentecost. Normally we spend our day celebrating the Spirit’s empowerment of the Church and Owen’s baptism anniversary. This year, since we were traveling, we will celebrate Owen’s baptism on Trinity Sunday (the Sunday after Pentecost).
We’re heading into the part of the Church year that is often forgotten. It’s much easier to celebrate a holiday than a season, and Ordinary Time (from Trinity Sunday till Advent) is quite a long season. Yet for me, it’s the time when each day becomes holy and I find myself growing like a garden.
My chapter of Let Us Keep the Feast: Pentecost and Ordinary Time, is out. Here’s the link to order from the publisher, and here’s the link from Amazon. It’s meant to be an encouragement to live your time as sacred—all of it, even the ordinary moments. In the fall, the full set of booklets will be released as a book. I’ll keep you posted.
