month of September is dedicated to Our Lady of Sorrows, whose memorial
the Church celebrates on September 15. September falls during the
liturgical season known as Ordinary Time, which is represented by the
liturgical color green.
September, as in all of Ordinary Time (formerly known as Time After
Pentecost), the Liturgy does not focus on one particular mystery of
Christ, but views the mystery of Christ in all its aspects. We follow
the life of Christ through the Gospels, and focus on the teachings and
parables of Jesus and what it means for us to be a follower of Christ.
During Ordinary Time we can concentrate more on the saints and imitate
their holiness as Christ's followers.
Christ, Prince of Peace
