Ordinary Time

Some people say they wish that every day was Christmas.

However, as I mentioned at this time last year, because of our earthly human psychology, if every day was Christmas, then Christmas would no longer be special: Christmas would be mundane and we would lose heart.

This evening, something wonderful will begin.
