JMJ: “Jovens, vocês são o ‘agora’ de Deus!” Até Lisboa!

Cidade do Panamá – Na mesma esplanada que acolheu 600 mil jovens para a festa da Vigília na noite anterior, o Papa celebrou na manhã deste domingo (27/01) a missa campal de envio da edição panamenha da Jornada Mundial da Juventude. Chegando em papamóvel ao Metro Park, Francisco foi recebido pelo Arcebispo de Panamá, Dom José Domingo Ulloa Mendieta, e com ele a bordo, prosseguiu entre os fiéis até a Sacristia do Campo São João Paulo II. Telões foram instalados em pontos estratégicos do campo para uma melhor visibilidade das 600 mil pessoas presentes. Na área destinada às autoridades, estavam os presidentes de 5 países latino-americanos: Costa Rica, Colômbia, Guatemala, El Salvador e Honduras, além do português Marcelo Rebelo de Souza.

Jesus e o ceticismo da comunidade
Em sua homilia, o Papa refletiu sobre ‘o agora de Deus’, tema apresentado no Evangelho de Lucas: Era o início da missão pública de Jesus e na sinagoga, circundado por conhecidos e vizinhos, Ele pronuncia publicamente as palavras “Cumpriu-se hoje”, que significavam a presença de Deus, o tempo de Deus que torna justos e oportunos todos os espaços e situações. Em Jesus, começa e faz-se vida o futuro prometido.

Mas nem todos aqueles que lá O ouviram, se sentiam convidados ou convocados; não estavam prontos para acreditar em alguém que conheciam e tinham visto crescer e que os convidava a realizar um sonho há muito aguardado. E o mesmo acontece às vezes também conosco, explicou o Papa: “Nem sempre acreditamos que Deus possa ser tão concreto no dia-a-dia, tão próximo e real, e menos ainda que Se faça assim presente agindo através de alguém conhecido, como um vizinho, um amigo, um parente”.

Não subestimar, mas assumir
De fato, prosseguiu Francisco, é comum comportarmo-nos como os vizinhos de Nazaré, preferindo um Deus à distância: magnífico, bom, generoso mas distante e que não incomode, porque um Deus próximo no dia-a-dia, amigo e irmão, nos pede para aprendermos proximidade, presença diária e, sobretudo, fraternidade.

Francisco alertou os jovens para o risco de pensar que a vida seja uma promessa que vale só para o futuro, que nada tem a ver com o presente. Como se ser jovem fosse sinônimo de uma ‘sala de espera’ para o futuro, considerando que o seu ‘agora’ ainda não chegou; que são jovens demais para se envolverem no sonho e na construção do amanhã.

Criar um espaço comum e lutar por ele
A este ponto, o Papa recordou o recente Sínodo dos Jovens, celebrado em outubro passado, no Vaticano, destacando como um de seus frutos “a riqueza da escuta entre gerações, do intercâmbio e do valor de reconhecer que precisamos uns dos outros; “que devemos esforçar-nos por promover canais e espaços onde nos comprometamos a sonhar e construir o amanhã, já hoje, unidos, criando um espaço em comum: um espaço que não nos é oferecido como um presente, nem o ganhamos na loteria, mas um espaço pelo qual vocês também devem lutar”.

“ Porque vocês, queridos jovens, não são o futuro, mas o agora de Deus”, disse, prosseguindo: “Ele os convoca e os chama, em suas comunidades e cidades, para irem à procura dos avós, dos mais velhos; para se erguerem de pé e, juntamente com eles, tomar a palavra e realizar o sonho com que o Senhor os sonhou. Não amanhã; mas agora!”.

A missão com Deus é a nossa vida
Incitando os jovens a deixar-se apaixonar por Deus, sentindo que possuem uma missão, Francisco concluiu sua homilia lembrando que o Senhor e sua missão não são um ‘entretanto’, uma coisa passageira, mas são ‘as nossas vidas’, e que o amor de Deus é concreto, próximo e real: “É alegria festiva que nasce da opção de participar na pesca miraculosa da esperança e da caridade, da solidariedade e da fraternidade frente a tantos olhares paralisados e paralisadores por causa dos medos e da exclusão, da especulação e da manipulação”.

Viver o amor concretamente
Assim como Maria, que não Se limitou a acreditar em Deus e nas suas promessas como algo possível, mas acreditou em Deus e teve a coragem de dizer ‘sim’ para participar neste agora do Senhor, devemos viver em concreto o nosso amor: “Que o seu ‘sim’ continue a ser a porta de entrada para que o Espírito Santo conceda um novo Pentecostes ao mundo e à Igreja” – foram as palavras conclusivas do Papa.

O ‘obrigado’ do Papa
No final desta celebração, Francisco agradeceu todas as autoridades civis, o arcebispo de Panamá e os bispos do país e das nações vizinhas, por tudo o que fizeram em suas comunidades para dar abrigo e ajuda a tantos jovens. O ‘obrigado’ do Papa se dirigiu também a todas as pessoas que a apoiaram com a a oração e colaboraram com dedicação e trabalho na realização da JMJ e principalmente, a todos os jovens: “ Sua fé e alegria fizeram vibrar o Panamá, a América e o mundo inteiro ”

O último pedido a todos foi para que regressem às suas paróquias e comunidades, famílias e amigos e transmitam esta experiência, para que outros possam vibrar “com a sua força e o seu sonho”.

ATÉ LISBOA

O Presidente do Dicastério para os Leigos, a Família e a Vida, Cardeal Kevin Farrell, anunciou a próxima cidade que irá receber a Jornada Mundial da Juventude ao final da missa conclusiva do evento do Panamá neste domingo (27/01), no Campo São João Paulo II. A cidade de Lisboa, em Portugal, vai sediar a JMJ de 2022.

A preparação para a próxima festa mundial dos jovens começa já nesta semana, segundo afirma o Pe. José Manuel Pereira de Almeida, teólogo e vice-reitor da Universidade Católica de Portugal: “Será uma ocasião extraordinária ter os jovens do mundo inteiro e o Papa aqui. Começamos a trabalhar já nesta semana!”.

ANGELUS
Abraçar o próximo com gestos simples e diários

O Papa Francisco visitou o Lar do Bom Samaritano neste domingo (27/01), por ocasião da sua participação na Jornada Mundial da Juventude, no Panamá. Ao encontrar os doentes do local e de outros centros de assistência, mas também diretores, colaboradores e agentes pastorais, o Pontífice confessou “o desejo ardente” do encontro na casa-família para se renovar a esperança.

Lembrando um dos testemunhos lidos pelo Pontífice antes da visita que dizia “aqui nasci de novo”, o Papa afirmou que esse tipo de espaço é “sinal da vida nova que o Senhor nos quer dar” e são neles que “a Igreja e a fé nascem e se renovam continuamente por meio da caridade”.

“ Começamos a nascer de novo, quando o Espírito Santo nos dá olhos para ver os outros – como nos dizia o Padre Domingo – não apenas como nossos vizinhos (o que é já tanto), mas como nosso próximo. ”

O rosto do próximo
O Papa Francisco, então, fez referência à parábola do Bom Samaritano para dar o exemplo do “nosso próximo”, um “rosto que incomoda maravilhosamente a vida”:

“O próximo é sobretudo um rosto que encontramos ao longo do caminho e pelo qual nos deixamos mover e comover: mover dos nossos planos e prioridades e comover intimamente por aquilo que vive aquela pessoa, para lhe dar lugar e espaço na nossa caminhada. […] O bom Samaritano, como todas as vossas casas, mostram-nos que o próximo é, antes de tudo, uma pessoa, alguém com um rosto concreto e real, e não qualquer coisa a deixar para trás ou ignorar, seja qual for a sua situação. É um rosto que revela a nossa humanidade tantas vezes atribulada e ignorada.”

Criando comunidades
O Papa Francisco disse que visitar o Lar é “tocar o rosto silencioso e materno da Igreja, que é capaz de profetizar e criar casa, criar comunidade”. E, assim, explicou: “ Criar «casa» é criar família; é aprender a se sentir unido aos outros, sem olhar a vínculos utilitaristas ou funcionais, de modo que nos faz sentir a vida um pouco mais humana. Criar casa é permitir que a profecia encarne e torne as nossas horas e dias menos rudes, indiferentes e anônimos. É criar laços que se constroem com gestos simples, diários e que todos podemos realizar. ”

E as casas, lembrou o Pontífice, precisam sempre da colaboração de todos, o que implica também “ter paciência, aprender a nos perdoar; aprender cada dia a recomeçar”. Então o Papa questionou e respondeu em seguida: “quantas vezes temos de perdoar e recomeçar? Setenta vezes sete, todas as vezes que for necessário. Criar relações fortes requer a confiança, que se alimenta diariamente de paciência e perdão”.

Angelus: coragem para se doar
O Papa Francisco, depois de agradecer o trabalho de todos para manter viva e concretizar “o milagre de experimentar que, aqui, se nasce de novo”, rezou a oração mariana do Angelus. À Virgem Maria, como “Boa Samaritana”, o Pontífice pediu “que nos ensine a estar atentos para descobrir cada dia quem é o nosso próximo e nos encoraje a ir prontamente ao seu encontro e dar-lhe uma casa, um abraço onde possa encontrar proteção e amor de irmãos”.

Brumadinho: a solidariedade do Papa Francisco
Após rezar o Angelus no Lar do Samaritano, em Cidade do Panamá, o Papa Francisco expressou sua solidariedade às vítimas de Brumadinho (MG). O Pontífice manifestou seu pesar também pela tragédia no Estado mexicano de Hidalgo, com a explosão de um oleoduto.
