BONDADE-12: ATENÇÃO AMOROSA

Não desprezar. Aqui temos o que poderíamos chamar o “primeiro mandamento” da benignidade. Valorizar e confiar, esta é a versão positiva desse mandamento.

Uma das manifestações mais comoventes da bondade de Cristo é a sua infinita capacidade de prestar uma atenção amorosa e confiante a todos, mesmo aos que parecem mais pervertidos e irrecuperáveis. É uma atitude que vemos a cada passo nos relatos evangélicos, ao contemplarmos o modo acolhedor e esperançado com que Cristo encara os pecadores, os miseráveis, todos aqueles que aparecem como o rebotalho imprestável do mundo.

Há, concretamente, uma passagem do Evangelho em que essa atitude se revela com grande transparência. São Lucas pinta a cena com os traços de um drama em que intervêm dois personagens, Cristo e um fariseu chamado Simão.

Ambos contemplam o mesmo fato: a irrupção inesperada de uma mulher pecadora na casa do fariseu, onde Jesus estava à mesa juntamente com outros convidados. E eis que uma mulher, que era pecadora na cidade, quando soube que Ele estava à mesa em casa do fariseu, levou um vaso de alabastro cheio de bálsamo. Estando a seus pés, detrás dEle, começou a banhar-lhe os pés com lágrimas, enxugava-os com os cabelos da sua cabeça, beijava-os e ungia-os com bálsamo (Lc 7, 37-38). Aquela pobre mulher, tocada na alma pela divina bondade de Cristo, não sabe o que fazer para expressar a sua dor, o seu arrependimento.

Dois pares de olhos fixam-se especialmente nela: os do fariseu Simão e os de Cristo. Ambos observam a mesma cena, a mesma pessoa, os mesmos gestos. Mas vEem coisas inteiramente diferentes.

O fariseu lança à pecadora um olhar do desprezo: Vendo isto, o fariseu que o tinha convidado disse consigo: Se este fosse profeta, com certeza saberia quem e qual é a mulher que o toca, e que é pecadora. Simão só vê o “lado mau”.

Cristo, pelo contrário, dirige à pecadora o olhar do amor benigno. Mansamente, volta-se para o fariseu e diz-lhe: Simão, tenho uma coisa a dizer-te… E o que Cristo vai dizer-lhe, com um laivo de tristeza, é que Simão ainda não aprendeu a enxergar com bondade, ainda não aprendeu a apreciar o valor dos outros com uma “atenção amorosa”.

Vês esta mulher?… – sim, é necessário, é importante conseguir “ver” os outros –, vês esta mulher? Entrei em tua casa e não me deste água para os pés; e esta com as suas lágrimas banhou os meus pés e enxugou-os com os seus cabelos. Não me deste o beijo da paz, mas esta, desde que entrou, não cessou de beijar os meus pés. Não ungiste a minha cabeça com bálsamo, mas esta ungiu com bálsamo os meus pés. Pelo que te digo: São-lhe perdoados os seus muitos pecados porque muito amou (cfr. Lc 7, 40-47).

Como se percebe bem aqui o modo de olhar de Jesus! Mais do que ninguém, Cristo era capaz de penetrar no abismo de mal que o pecado cavara naquela alma. E mais do que ninguém, por ser ele Deus – Deus feito homem –, podia sentir-se atingido pelo pecado, pois este é, acima de tudo, ofensa a Deus.

Nada disso, porém, passa para o primeiro plano no olhar de Cristo. Na escuridão do pecado que envolve a alma daquela mulher, não detém a vista no que o ofende; só vê brilhar – como a luz que cintila numa noite escura – a bondade que começa a desabrochar naquela alma dolorida. Apenas vê o “lado bom”, a raiz de bondade que está a despertar e que Ele pode e quer ajudar a crescer. Por isso, estende-lhe a mão e a salva: A tua fé te salvou; vai em paz (Lc 7, 50).

Nessa atitude de Cristo há matéria abundante para meditar.
