Monday of the Tenth Week in Ordinary Time

Standard

Today the liturgical calendar reverts back to “ordinary time”, and the Easter season is over. It seems strange though that after what has just occurred, and the journey that has just been taken, that people simply return to the ordinary. The Easter season is not about returning to something, the disciples after witnessing the resurrected Christ did not return to something ordinary, and the Pentecost event of yesterday was hardly ordinary. It really isn’t about returning to “ordinary time”, but really is about entering into something extraordinary. Pentecost after all begins something extraordinary. How fitting that the first gospel reading of this extraordinary time begins with the beatitudes as yesterdays event is a true blessing.
