Almost ordinary time

It’s almost ordinary time again, which means we are about done with that most extraordinary time of Advent/Christmas/Epiphany.

I’m always amazed by the way sacred and secular mix, by the way ld traditions stay with us or change, and by how contagious the whole idea of Christmas is.

Here are 30 amazing photos of these seasons around the world. There are pictures to make you cry, to make you laugh, to make you wonder. Take a few minutes to look at them, if not now, then later. Because if you don’t you’ll miss things like:

  • The prevalance of swimming in many traditions. (Who knew?)
  • Santa and Jesus running a 5k.
  • The beautiful faces of devotion, from popes and patriarchs, from children and nuns, from people who are celebrating amidst plenty and amidst suffering.
