The mission of Spirituality of the Ordinary is to cultivate attentiveness to God and authentic relationships with ourselves and one another through the beauty of the written word. We are an intentionally Catholic community that seeks to embrace a spirit of dialogue. We consider work from writers of all walks of life. We publish spiritual reflections and articles intended to address any of the three pillars of our mission:
- Encouragement in the life of faith
Drawing inspiration from Ephesians 4, we seek to build up the Body of Christ by strengthening one another in our vocations.
- Seeing the sacred in the moment
Rooted in Ignatian Spirituality, we seek to find God in all things and live as contemplatives in action.
- Deepening kinship and solidarity with one another
In imitation of Jesus, we seek to embrace all with hearts of hospitality and welcome.
Submit original, unpublished work below. Submissions should be 800-1000 words, indicate the pillar you intend to address, and include a short bio with links to wherever we can find you online. Finally, let us know if this is a stand alone piece, or if you would like to be considered as a Contributor. If your piece is selected, we will respond within two weeks with further details.
Live in a manner worthy of the call you have received, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another through love, striving to preserve the unity of the spirit through the bond of peace: one body and one Spirit, as you were also called to the one hope of your call; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.Ephesians 4:1-4
