This weekend our liturgy turns to Ordinary Time. This is the time between Christmas and Lent. In a few short weeks we will move into Lent and our preparation for Easter. The cycle of time and of our lives continues.

While the world has moved well past Christmas, we the Church still celebrates Christmas today. Christmas time ends with the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord. The Gospel tells us of Jesus’ baptism by his cousin, John the Baptist. From the heavens a voice is heard to say: “This is my beloved Son.” This is another of our celebrations of manifestation which Christmas is all about. During the Christmas Season the Church celebrates the many ways Jesus has appeared to us as God.

This weekend our Christmas celebration continues with the Feast of the Epiphany which has commonly been known as “Little Christmas.” In some Christian faith traditions the Feast of the Epiphany is a more solemn feast than Christmas.
