We are entering the very short season of Winter Ordinary time. There are only four weeks in this liturgical time between Advent/Christmas and Lent! In seasons with major feasts we prepare our houses for the feast and most importantly we prepare our hearts for the Nativity and the Resurrection. So what then is the purpose of the “space” of Ordinary Time? This is when we hear the stories of our salvation so that we may come to know Jesus and who we are to be as His disciples. This is our focus during this “ordinary” resting time - to listen, to absorb and to carry the good news of Jesus to a worn and weary world. Pope Francis encourages us for this task in his Apostolic Exhortation, Evangelii Gaudium. “The Church’s closeness to Jesus is part of a common journey; “communion and mission are profoundly interconnected”. In fidelity to the example of the Master, it is vitally important for the Church today to go forth and preach the Gospel to all: to all places, on all occasions, without hesitation, reluctance or fear. The joy of the Gospel is for all people: no one can be excluded. That is what the angel proclaimed to the shepherds in Bethlehem: ‘Be not afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy which will come to all the people (Lk 2:10). The Book of Revelation speaks of ‘an eternal Gospel to proclaim to those who dwell on earth, to every nation and tongue and tribe and people” (Rev 14:6).” (EG 23)
