Wikipedia Quote of the Day (in bold)


"In the Orthodox Church and in the Eastern Catholic Churches, Sundays are all numbered after Pentecost which runs through the following year. Orthodox do not have ordinary time."

It's amusing to me that the quote is amusing to you. The distinction between ordinary time and and the two festal cycles are so ingrained in me that it's been a small irritant that Orthodoxy doesn't make the distinction.

All the same, it is true that to us "gringos," nothing is ordinary in the Orthodox Church.
