Ordinary Time

Ordinary Time refers to the season celebrated in two segments in the Christian liturgical calendar: from the Monday following the Presentation of our Lord Jesus Christ in the Temple to Ash Wednesday; and from Pentecost Monday to the First Sunday of Advent. The English name "Ordinary" translates the Latin term ordinals, indicating that the weeks are numbered in a series (ordinal numbers).  It is a time for growth and maturing of the Church. It is also sometimes called Kingdomtide as it is seen as the time of Advancing for the Kingdom of Jesus.
