No doubt some of you out there can split this word into its latin roots, which lay bare its meaning – assuming it has latin roots! But to me it has always seemed a clumsy set of letters and sounds designed to confuse and be pedantic. (And I guess pedantic is a word that might fall into the same class – precocious words!)
Another way of saying it is mañana.
That is a simple spanish word with the perfectly transparent meaning of tomorrow. But when you say it with a shrug (metaphorical or actual) it means, you’ve guessed it, procrastination.
So what is it that we describe with a clumsy antiquated word, or with a lazily augmented Spanish one?
It’s precisely the opposite with Jesus. Everything has its appointed time.
So what does it mean? Well, you’ll have to wait and see…
