THE SCHOOL OF JESUS

The situation in which our Christian communities find themselves today is not easy at all. As followers of Christ, there are some questions that rise from within our hearts: where do we find our faith at these times of religious crisis? What is really important at these present times? What should our Christian communities do? What must our efforts be aimed at?
Matthew concludes his Gospel narrative with a scene of utmost importance. Jesus arranged to meet his disciples for the last time in order to entrust them with a special mission. These will be the last words that the disciples are going to hear Jesus speak: they will guide them in their mission and sustain their faith for centuries to come.
Following the suggestion from the women, the disciples gathered together inGalilee. That was the place where their relationship with Jesus started. And it was there, too, that they had committed themselves to follow Him with his project of theKingdomofGod. But now, however, they gather together without knowing what to expect. Will they ever see him, after he had been executed?
Meeting the Risen Jesus was not easy. When they saw Him they fell down before Him; they realized there was something new about Him; they wanted to believe, though some hesitated. They felt both confident and sad. They adored Him, but they still had doubts and insecurity. Christians today, too, might share those emotions. We have felt those same experiences often.
What is really amazing is that Jesus does not take it against them. He knows them from the day he invited them to follow Him. He knows their faith is limited: in spite of their doubts and fears, He still trusts in all of them. Even though their faith is small and fragile, they will preach his Gospel to the rest of the world. They will be able to understand, centuries later, when their own followers waver in their own faith. Jesus will embrace all of them.
The task that Jesus is entrusting to them is very clear: “Go and make disciples of all nations.” He does not ask them to preach a particular doctrine, but simply to see that men and women live like true followers of Jesus. They should look up to Him as their Master and learn to be free, just, and compassionate; in this way they will help make this world a better place to live.
Matthew sees the Christian community as a “SchoolofJesus”. We might be many or few; some may be convinced believers, others doubting members. We will not be able to look after everyone the way we wish. What is really important is that all Christian followers may live following Jesus’ guidelines. He alone should be our teacher. The rest of us must be brothers and sisters helping one another to become true disciples.

OPEN THE HORIZON

If we only occupy ourselves with the immediate goals of greater wellbeing, or if we find ourselves attracted by small dreams and hopes, we run the risk of impoverishing the horizon of our existence, losing our yearning for eternity. Is this progress? Or is it a mistake?
There are two things that are easy to verify about this new millennium we have lived in for the past few years. On one hand, we find growing in human society the hope and dream of a better world. We aren’t content with just any old thing: we need to progress toward a more dignified world, one that is more human and full of happiness.
On the other hand, discouragement, skepticism and uncertainty about the future is growing. There’s so much needless suffering in the life of people and of nations, so many poisonous conflicts, so much abuse of our planet, that it’s not easy to keep faith in humanity.
However the development of science and technology is successfully resolving many maladies and sufferings. In the future they will no doubt accomplish even more spectacular results. There’s no way we’re able to imagine humanity’s capability to develop physical, psychological and social wellbeing.
But it wouldn’t be honest to forget that this prodigious development ‘saves’ us only from some maladies within certain limitations. It’s right now as we enjoy human progress more and more, that we begin to better perceive that human beings can’t give themselves all that they desire and seek.
Who can save self from getting old, from the inevitable death, from the strange power of evil? We don’t need to be surprised that many are starting to feel the necessity of something that isn’t just technique or science or ideological doctrine. Human beings resist living enclosed forever in this worn-out and mortal condition.
However not a few Christians live their lives today just looking exclusively at the earth. It seems that we don’t dare lift up our eyes to see beyond the immediacy of each day. In this Christian feast of the Lord’s Ascension I want to remember some words of that great scientist and mystic – Teilhard de Chardin: “Christians, just 20 centuries after the Ascension – what have you done to Christian hope?”
In the midst of questions and uncertainties, Jesus’ followers keep walking through life, carrying confidence and conviction. When it seems that life gets closed in or snuffed out, God remains. Reality’s ultimate mystery is a mystery of goodness and of love. God is an open Door to the life that no one can close.
