Seasons of the Church Year

ordinarytime 150Ordinary Time is the longest season in the Church’s year. Comprising thirty-three weeks, it is divided into two sections; one short and the other very long.

ashwednesday 150The Lenten season is an invitation to relive with Jesus the forty days he spent in the desert, praying and fasting, before undertaking his public mission … This is the authentic and central program of the Lenten Season: to listen to the Word of truth, to live, speak, and do the truth, to reject lies that poison humanity and are the door to all evils.

resurrection 150The resurrection. A story too good to be true? Even Jesus' disciples found it difficult to believe at first. But then the reality began to sink in: He is risen from the dead! Death is not the end. Our sins are forgiven. Peace is a real possibility. Life can be filled with a hope which no one, not even the most evil of evils, can take from us.

pentecost 150Pentecost is a special event in the Catholic calendar as it marks the day that the Holy Spirit descended on the apostles of Jesus.

advent 150Advent has a twofold character, for it is a time of preparation for the Solemnity of Christmas, in which the First Coming of the Son of God to humanity is remembered, and likewise a time when, by remembrance of this, minds and hearts are led to look forward to Christ’s Second Coming at the end of time.
