We find ourselves in Ordinary Time.
The time after Pentecost is a time of discipleship, a time to let the Spirit form us after the image of Christ. The green colour symbolizes growth and hope.
Growth happens when we receive the word of God and keep it.
The memory of the Saints, men and women who each in his or her own fashion let the Gardener work freely on them, offers hope and inspiration when we must wait for the sprouts and the fruit ripens slowly...
The Eucharist nourishes our spiritual life.
