In Ordinary Time is a collection of fourteen stories that mainly surround the Catholic faith and its people. Characters are real, flawed, yet sincere and honest. To say there is always a happy ending to each story would be an untruth; but there is a subtle ending, and it is one in which everyone is a winner. Life and its purpose have been discovered, realized, understood, and even acted upon. Readers will find themselves immersed in the problems of clergy, lay people, and religious. Their struggles are compelling and, in many instances, their troubles reality based. Yet they come through it all as heroes who have fought the good fight, found their destiny, and made every attempt to right their wrongs. The characters in these short stories are an uplifting crowd. They are unique individuals with special gifts. They are a community of believers, in many diverse ways, and they muddle through life and finally stumble on its true meaning.
