Though we, in the Anglican-flavored Ordinariates, call this season Trinitytide rather than Ordinary Time, I (Br. John-Bede Pauley, O.S.B.) would be reluctant to sacrifice the idea that this long stretch during the liturgical year is not without its quotidian ordinariness. What can seem like trudging through a liturgical same old same old is paradoxically where grace can abound, which means the ordinary is ripe with possibilities for the extraordinary.
In any case, I post a photo of one of our oblates, Father Jack Augustine-of-Canterbury Barker, Obl.S.B., who was carrying out his ordinary duty by filling in, last Sunday, at St. John Henry Newman Church, the Ordinariate parish in Irvine, California. (Hood-doff to Gregory Martha-of-Bethany Herr, Obl.S.B., for the photo.)
