St. Jude Parish

Proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ to All

We are now in the short period of Ordinary Time in our liturgical year.  It provides us the opportunity to relax and be simple as we move toward the season of Lent/Easter.  The liturgical color for Ordinary Time is green. Green is meant to symbolize hope, to be a symbol of life. Several things are possible to take advantage of this seasonal color. We can imagine taking a green plant that we already have, or getting one, and placing it, or a cutting from it, in a prominent place in our house to say that we are going to be hopeful in God's love for us. God's love, like the life flowing through this plant, is faithful. When we look at the plant, we can be conscious of an inner desire - perhaps expressed in a verbal prayer - that God give us hope and trust. And, when we water the plant, or perhaps give it plant food, we are nourishing this life, as God nourishes us. A simple symbol, but it can be a very ordinary time gift for us.  Let us celebrate the wonder in the simplicity of what is ordinary!
