0239- St. Joseph-
(Luke 10, 29-37)
The parable of the good Samaritan puts in
front of us a classic example of what Jesus considered
a good behavior model. This parable also had another
lesson, as the protagonist was “Samaritan”, a man
from a race that was despicable to those who
considered themselves “the chosen people”. The
lesson is simple: you are one the “chosen people” only
if you love. Love cannot be substituted not even by
prayer or the sacraments, when God asks us at a
specific time to help our neighbor. Pray, receive
communion or go to confession are a manifestation of
this love, but cannot be considered the only
expressions of this love, especially at the price of
forgetting the needs of our neighbor.
But there is another lesson in this parable, and it is
directed to those who analyze their conscience from
the perspective of not committing sins, of not doing
evil. They generally forget that there is a very subtle
but frequent sin; that of omission. Neither the priest
nor the Pharisee had done anything wrong to the
beaten man. However, the Lord does not put them as
models of behavior for his disciples. He who can do a
good deed and doesn’t do it, commits a sin, all the
greater as great as the need for help of the neighbor.
Christ doesn’t ask us to solve the problems of the
world, but ask us to put our grain of sand, including
with effort, so that these problems can be solved. To
love, we must not forget, is a commandment, a
Christian duty.
Intention: When we see someone who needs help, help
them with all our strength, without overwhelming ourselves,
but realizing that Christ is in the needy neighbor and is
waiting for us.
3. How is it possible to know God with only the
light of human reason?
Starting from creation, that is from the world and from
the human person, through reason alone one can know
God with certainty as the origin and end of the
universe, as the highest good and as infinite truth and
4. Is the light of reason alone sufficient to know
the mystery of God?
In coming to a knowledge of God by the light of reason
alone man experiences many difficulties. Indeed, on
his own he is unable to enter into the intimacy of the
divine mystery. This is why he stands in need of being
enlightened by God’s revelation, not only about those
things that exceed his understanding, but also about
those religious and moral truths which of themselves
are not beyond the grasp of human reason, so that even
in the present condition of the human race, they can be
known by all with ease, with firm certainty and with
no admixture of error.

3. ¿Cómo se puede conocer a Dios con la sola luz
de la razón?
A partir de la Creación, esto es, del mundo y de la
persona humana, el hombre, con la sola razón, puede
con certeza conocer a Dios como origen y fin del
universo y como sumo bien, verdad y belleza infinita.
4. ¿Basta la sola luz de la razón para conocer el
misterio de Dios?
Para conocer a Dios con la sola luz de la razón, el
hombre encuentra muchas dificultades. Además, no
puede entrar por sí mismo en la intimidad del
misterio divino. Por ello, Dios ha querido iluminarlo
con su Revelación, no sólo acerca de las verdades
que superan la comprensión humana, sino también
sobre verdades religiosas y morales, que, aun siendo
de por sí accesibles a la razón, de esta manera pueden
ser conocidas por todos sin dificultad, con firme
certeza y sin mezcla de error.
La parábola del buen samaritano nos pone ante los ojos
un ejemplo clásico de lo que Jesús considera un buen
modelo de comportamiento. Esa parábola tenía,
además, una segunda lectura, pues el protagonista era
“samaritano”, un hombre perteneciente a una raza
despreciada por los que se consideraban el “pueblo
elegido”. La lección es sencilla: se es “pueblo elegido”
sólo si se ama. El amor no puede ser sustituido ni
siquiera por la oración y los sacramentos, cuando lo
que Dios pide en un momento concreto es que se ayude
al prójimo. Rezar, comulgar o confesarse son una
manifestación de ese amor, pero no pueden
considerarse como las únicas expresiones del amor,
sobre todo a costa de olvidar las que hacen referencia
a las necesidades del prójimo.
Pero hay otra enseñanza más en la parábola, y va
dirigida a aquellos que analizan su conciencia desde la
perspectiva de no cometer pecados, de no hacer el mal.
Suelen olvidar que hay un pecado muy sutil pero muy
frecuente: el de omisión. Ni el sacerdote ni el fariseo
le habían hecho nada malo a aquel hombre apaleado.
Sin embargo, el Señor no los puso como modelo de
comportamiento para sus discípulos. El que puede
hacer el bien y no lo hace, comete un pecado, tanto
mayor cuanta más grande es la necesidad de ayuda que
tiene el prójimo. Cristo no nos pide que resolvamos los
problemas del mundo, pero sí que pongamos nuestro
grano de arena, incluso con esfuerzo, para que esos
problemas sean resueltos. Amar, no hay que olvidarlo,
es un mandamiento, un deber para el cristiano.
Propósito: Cuando veamos a alguien que necesita ayuda,
socorrerle con todas nuestras fuerzas, sin agobiarnos, pero
siendo conscientes de que Cristo está en el prójimo
necesitado y nos espera.
