Blessed is September, for it shall end August.
Blessed are those who shop for school shoes and supplies, for they shall learn patience.
Blessed are the poor in pocket, for they shall be called parents.
Blessed are the teachers, for they shall hunger and thirst for silence.
Blessed are the email and phone answerers, the parent callers and voices over the intercom calling children, for they shall be called school secretaries.
Blessed are those who chaperone for field trips’ sake, for they shall be called room mothers.
Blessed are those who wake up slow and are not ready in the morning, for they shall be called students.
Blessed are we all for God’s gift of a new school year, for we shall be called OLV, and we shall be blessed.

Ordinary time is that time in the church year which is outside the seasons of Advent, Christmas, Lent, and Easter. Ordinary time takes us through the life of Jesus. We see how He spread the message of God and called his disciples. It is a time for us to grow closer to God by living a life which reflects the beliefs Jesus taught.
