Hardiman, R. (2003). Ordinary time in the Roman Missal: How ordinary is ordinary?. Pastoral Liturgy, 33 (4-5), 18-19.
The name Ordinary Time for this season gives the impression - in the normal use of the English language - that it is nothing special and therefore doesn't matter. It counts - literally in order - therefore it does matter.
