We are back to Ordinary Time which will continue until the feast of Christ the King, prior to Advent. Looking around at this time of the year we see a lot of green, especially if you are out in the wheat country. Green is a sign of hope, and we, like the farmers, are hopeful of a great harvest of the fruits of the Holy Spirit that we find in Galatians 5:5, fruits like charity, joy, peace, etc….Our hope too is that during this  ” anything but ordinary time” we might grow and blossom into the person the Lord intends us to be. Like St Paul in our second reading, we have to experience on-going conversion for this to happen. The grace of God is equal to the task and so we can hope, we can move forward confidently, knowing that in our weakness God’s strength is manifested. Jesus is about resurrection, new life, and He wants us to experience His “life-power” in our lives….blessings of  hope, fr  dan
