Ordinary Time

For a large part of the liturgical year, we devote ourselves to listening to the mystery of Christ in all its aspects unfolded as we seek God's truth and understanding.

Activity of the Week

Third Sunday in Ordinary Time

Choose one of the following activities as a way to further reflect on the Sunday readings:

  • Jesus is present in Sacred Scripture. Make a special place of honor for your family Bible. Let it become a reminder to the family of Jesus’ presence. Family members can take turns during the week reading a favorite Scripture passage before the evening meal.
  • Gather the family together and light a candle. Allow time for each family member to reflect on a time when he or she felt Jesus’ presence in a special way. Have each person tell about the experience.
  • Take out pictures from your family photo album and give one picture to each family member. Share the family stories in the pictures. Talk about how Jesus is present in the life and love that you share as a family.
  • Have each family member write one or two statements from Scripture that they will live out this week. Post the statements on the refrigerator. At the end of the week, before dinner, talk about what each family member did and how he or she felt Jesus’ presence during the week.
