The unstoppable power of Love!
January 30 2022 IV Sunday in O.T.

Dear brothers and sisters, the passage from Luke's Gospel that we’re going to listen to on Sunday, January 30, fills us with joy at the thought that nothing and no one was able to prevent the realization of the merciful plan of God the Father for humanity in Christ, His beloved Son.
In fact, since His Birth many attempts were made to try to stop Jesus, to prevent him from fulfilling his mission of salvation:
By starting with King Herod the Great who tried to kill Him in Betlehem…
Then His fellow villagers who wanted to throw him off the cliff, (Lk 4: 21-30).
Paradoxically enough, even His own relatives tried to stop Him because they had the feeling that “He was out of His mind” (Mk 3, 21)
Finally, Pharisees and companions, who never got tired of plotting intrigues, tried desperately to have Jesus arrested by the guards of the Temple or, al least, have Him stoned by the crowds that they were able to manipulate. (Jn 7 45-45; 8, 31-59).
But… they all failed miserably.
In fact only when the hour established by the Father arrived (Jn 12:27) Jesus handed over his life so that, from the divine love given off on the altar of the Cross, a new dawn could rise for the whole of humanity finally redeemed from sin and from death!
