This photo was snapped at St. Henry Church (Elsmere, KY) after the Christmas decorations were taken down and the green altar cloth was laid for Ordinary Time. Despite the drab name, “ordinary” doesn’t mean dull or uneventful — it means the ordered, or numbered. days between feasts. Because of the incarnation of Christ, there are no “ordinary” days in the sense we generally use the term. All days are extraordinary, because they have been transformed by the Son of God.
