S. Afonso Rodrigues

Hoje a Companhia de Jesus celebra S. Afonso Rodrigues. Afonso nasceu em Segóvia em 1533 e entrou como Irmão na Companhia de Jesus em 1571, após a morte da sua mulher e dos seus filhos. Foi-lhe confiada a missão de ser porteiro em Maiorca, no Colégio da Companhia, onde morreu faz hoje 390 anos. Quando entrou no noviciado, alguém que perguntava para que servia este homem à Companhia recebeu como resposta que servia para ser santo. Deixo um breve excerto dos apontamentos espirituais de S. Afonso.

"O meu coração está cheio de ânsias e desejos de agradar a Deus, pelo grande amor que Lhe tenho, cortando comigo mesmo e com todas as coisas desta vida, para contentar a Deus. E como Ele vê os meus desejos, e trato com Ele e com Nossa Senhora, e só a Eles amo, e não quero amar senão o que eles querem, a Eles recorro, pondo-me a mim e a todas as coisas, minhas e dos outros, em suas mãos. Assim tudo corre bem e segundo a vontade de Deus."

Caro Bruno,obrigado por nos recordares a figura de Santo Afonso e também pelo seu breve texto que apesar de breve toca o essencial do Cristianismo. Há os que servem a Deus, como Santo Afonso, e os que se servem de Deus para realizarem os seus projectos e as suas ambições pessoais. Haverá algo de comum entre uns e outros? Parece-me que não!
