In Ordinary Time, the readings can seem a little random. They don’t have the same flow as the whole Lent/Easter/Pentecost thing. So it’s not as obvious where they’re going.
But they do have a purpose. They’re about the whole Lent/Easter/Pentecost thing. About making sure it doesn’t become one more thing that we box back up after a holiday.
The only way to do that? Live it. Every day.
With this Sunday’s readings, the Church goes for it. And throws us in at the deep end.
More on this tomorrow. Readings for Sunday
