“In every generation, they rise up to destroy us, but the Holy One, blessed be He, always delivers us from their hands” (Jewish Passover Liturgy)
Time and time again, because of God’s covenantal faithfulness, the Jewish nation survived extinction. And in His great mercy, Queen Esther, an exile from Israel, was chosen ‘for such a time as this’ bringing about God’s promise to His Chosen people.
After Esther’s mother and father died, her cousin Mordecai cared for her as his own daughter.
Mordecai sat at the King’s gate. Indicating that he filled an official role with the King’s court. Therefore, Mordecai was privy to certain information from the elite magistrates. Subsequently, he uncovered a murderous plot to exterminate the Jewish population.
Esther’s internal humility and her rise from an unknown Jewish girl to become queen over a mighty Empire, illustrates how God uses events and people as instruments to fulfill His plans. Only the all-knowing and all-powerful God can guarantee real freedom from sin, decay and death. From the Heavens and before time began, our Father had compassion toward us (John 3:16).
In fact, without His providence and continual care the world could not exist. Fallen that it is, He doesn’t want anyone to perish. In the same way, the result of Esther’s acceptance by the king was the salvation of her people Israel. Along with the further result that many among the Gentiles turned in faith to the ‘True God’ and became one with the people of God’ (Est 8:17)
Finally, the book of Esther ends with a sense of God’s enduring and everlasting concern for His people. To this day, Jewish people continue to celebrate their deliverance by God from the genocidal plans of Haman.
Thank you Holy Father. You do miracles so great! We worship and glorify your Holy Name
Grant us the same courage as Esther to do what is right.
