3rd Sunday in Ordinary Time
Jesus said to them, “Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men.”
Ordinary Time is that time of the liturgical year which is not connected directly with one of the both great seasons, Christmastide and Eastertide, as well as the times of their preparation, Lent and Advent.
The 33 (or 34 depending on how the feasts fall ) weeks of Ordinary Time contain the rest of Jesus’ earthly ministry and some of the major events of the Gospels we have come to know and love.
The miracles, the parables, the calling of the twelve, the sermon on the mount, the bread of life discourse. . . we get all that and more during this season. Truly, there is much to celebrate.
