His hour had not yet come

“So they tried to arrest him, but no one laid a hand upon him, because his hour had not yet come.” (JN 7: 30)

It is always about God’s will and about His providence; there are no mistakes, no accidents, nor stopgaps. History of mankind is not “the effect of chance” but protected by God, history of God’s love to us and the mystery of salvation. We are expecting “His hour,” we are preparing ourselves to celebrate this hour in the Good Friday liturgy, and today we use our hours to fulfill our missions—to be spouses and parents, friends and neighbors, siblings and citizens.

“One does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes forth from the mouth of God.” (Gospel Acclamation)
