A Not So Ordinary Season – What you need to know about Ordinary Time
What Does Ordinary Time Mean?
Before we can look specifically to the meaning of Ordinary Time,
we need to know something of the way the Church celebrates the
mystery of Christ during each liturgical year.
“Christ’s saving work is celebrated in sacred memory by the
Church on fixed days throughout the year. Each week on the day
called the Lord’s Day the Church commemorates the Lord’s resurrection. Once a year at Easter the Church honors this resurrection and passion with the utmost solemnity. In fact through the
yearly cycle the Church unfolds the entire mystery of Christ and
keeps the anniversaries of the saints.
“During the different seasons of the liturgical year, the Church, in
accord with traditional discipline, carries out the formation of the
faithful by means of devotional practices, both interior and exterior, instruction, and works of penance and mercy. “ (General
Norms of the Liturgical Year and Calendar, Chapter 1.1)
The Church’s liturgical year begins with Evening Prayer I of the
First Sunday of Advent. The seasons of the Church’s liturgical
year that celebrate a specific aspect of the mystery of Christ’s life
and mission are Advent, Christmas, Lent, the Easter Triduum and
Easter. The remaining 33 or 34 weeks (depending on the year) of
the yearly cycle make up Ordinary Time.
During Ordinary Time, as the days progress through the year, the
Church celebrates the fullness of the mystery of Christ, especially
on Sundays. Unlike those seasons where special focus is given to
the coming of Christ (Advent), the birth of Christ (Christmas), the
preparation for the Passion and Death of Christ (Lent) and the
Resurrection of Christ (Easter), Ordinary Time recalls the events
and mystery of Christ’s life in their totality.
It may have seemed to you at times, that this time is,
well, ordinary; in the sense that it is not as important. But that is
not so. Prior to the new missal that followed Vatican II, these days
were referred to as related to Sundays after Epiphany and Sundays
after Pentecost. This time is called Tempus per annum, “time
through the year.” It is from this that we render in English, Ordinary Time. Rather than meaning unimportant, it
means ordered, as in Ordered Time.
TITHING This week’s collection was $7,855.00,
(last year was $7,484.00).
Thank you for your continued generosity.
Yes, it’s that time of the year… we are looking
for proposals for next year for snow removal for
Holy Family Parish. If you or someone you
know is interested, please contact the rectory
office at 973-377-1817 or email [email protected].

Five Ways to Effectively Observe Ordinary Time
Ordinary Time, then, is also a time during which we can grow
closer to the Lord and deepen our spiritual lives. As we approach the first Sunday celebration in Ordinary Time 2013
(commonly known as the Second Sunday of Ordinary Time –
see question below in our bonus quiz), let’s look at five things
we can practice to get the most out of our observance of Ordinary Time. These are things we can do any time, but let’s use
them to renew our commitment to Christ throughout the year.
1..Surrender to Christ – There is nothing we can do to be
saved or to progress in the spiritual life except by Christ.
Begin each new day by surrendering yourself to Him and His
Will. Replace the habit of pride with the practice of humility,
trusting in the Lord.
2..Enter into and Remain in a State of Grace – We can make
no progress in the spiritual life if we are not in a state of sanctifying grace. Those who believed and were baptized were
freed of sin and its eternal punishment. They were justified by
Christ’s grace and said to be in a state of sanctifying grace. If
they have not knowingly and freely committed a mortal sin,
they remain so. If you are not in a state of sanctifying grace,
you need to be. If you are not baptized, seek to be baptized in
the Catholic Church. If you are baptized, but have committed
a mortal sin, that sin needs to be confessed in the Sacrament of
3..Develop a daily prayer habit – If we love someone, we desire to be with that person. The same is true if we love God.
Prayer is how we spend time with God. Commit to pray daily
prayers of Adoration, Petition, Intercession, Thanksgiving and
Praise. Devotionals, such as the Rosary, and liturgy, such as
the Divine Office, are great practices to assist you.
4..Meditate on the Sunday Mass Readings – Spend time each
week prayerfully reading and thinking about the coming Sun
day’s Mass readings; what they mean and how they apply to
your life. The Magnificat is a wonderful publication to help
you do this.
5..Be Christ to Others – Jesus Christ came not to be served,
but to serve. He calls His followers to do the same. We cannot
claim to follow Christ if we do not serve those people He
places in our daily lives. Service always requires us to be
Christ to those around us, but we are also called to serve those
we do not easily recognize. Widen your outreach this year. In
what way can you help others? Who can you serve? Take
these questions to daily prayer and ask Jesus to show you
those in need for whom you can make a difference. Then get
on with the Lord’s good work.
The response to Holy Family Parish’s Memorial Pavers
Project has been excellent. Our plan is to extend this paved
walkway through the coming years as we continue to grow.
What a wonderful way to remember a relative or friend,
living or deceased! At the doors of the church are extra
order forms. Please remember the Paver contribution is
tax deductible. Any questions, call Chairman Ralph Aurilia, 973-951-6508.

“Congratulations to the Dr. McDowell
Knights of Columbus Council 2248 of
Madison/Florham Park on receiving the
Founders Day Award from the New
Jersey State Council of the Knights of
Columbus. The council, which serves
both Holy Family and St. Vincent Martyr parishes, received the award for having the largest percentage in
membership gain for their size in the Paterson Diocese.
The council won the award by adding 15 new members to
their roster this year. The award was presented at the
State Councils' Founders Day Dinner in Avenal, New Jersey on June 5th. We thank the efforts of all of our officers
and members, particularly our Grand Knight Charlie Pane
and our brother Knight Tom Natoli, in spearheading our
membership drive. Those who may be interested in joining the Knights, and helping us to continue to grow and
serve our church and our communities, please feel free to
talk to any of our members, or visit our website at:”
Boiling Springs Savings Bank is providing us with a special
opportunity for fund raising. The program is called the
Community Alliance Banking Program, and Boiling Springs
will make a quarterly donation to Holy Family based on the
average balances in all members’ designated accounts. Eligible accounts include
checking, savings, CDs, Premium
Checking, Money Market and Individual Retirement accounts. Both new and existing accounts are eligible.
When you open a new account, inform the Customer Service
Representative that you would like this account to be part of
the Community Alliance Program for Holy Family. If you
already have an account, visit one of their branches to fill out
an enrollment form designating the accounts to be included
in the Community Alliance Program for Holy Family.
All account information is kept strictly confidential with
Boiling Springs and no one from Holy Family has any
knowledge of any member’s account information. We encourage all parish members, teachers and parents to enroll
because the more members we have the larger the quarterly
bank donation becomes.
Holy Family received $742.62 from Boiling Springs Bank
for the quarter ending June 30. This is a donation from
Boiling Springs Bank. No money comes from members’ accounts.
