Ordinary Time

General Info: The longest liturgical season in the year. Happens twice in a year. A time when the people of the Church meditate upon the whole mystery of Christ- his life, miracles and teachings – in the light of his Resurrection

Colour: Green (the colour of growth and hope)

Some Symbols that can be placed on your prayer table during Ordinary time: 

The Chi-Rho is consists of the first two letters of the Greek word for Christ. The fusion of these two letters into an abbreviation became a symbol for Christ. 

Picture of footsteps, this is to symbolize how the season of Ordinary time is an open invitation to walk with the Lord

Green is a symbol of hope and life. Having a living green plant symbolizes this. It reminds us that God's love, like the life flowing through this plant, is faithful.

A picture or map marking the ministry of Jesus. Ordinary time is a time where we follow Jesus through his ministry. Throughout this season we listen as the Gospels unfold for us the life and preaching of Jesus

Pictures of the miracles of Jesus, such as the Wedding Feast at Cana, that are explored during the season of Ordinary time would also be great additions to the prayer table.
