The Christmas season is complete -even on the Church calendar- although the Vatican is holding out just a bit longer with its decorations.

The liturgical calendar returned to Ordinary Time on Monday, January 12. The feast of the Baptism of the Lord was celebrated on the First Sunday in Ordinary Time and so January 18 is the Second Sunday in Ordinary Time.

For the day's scriptures and background material on them, check out the St. Louis University site and for some hints for helping kids prepare to the hear the Word, go to the Sadlier site.
