Riassunto

Questo articolo affronta le odierne sfide e preoccupazioni del nostro mondo contrassegnato

da immigrazione, esilio, barriere linguistiche ed emarginazione, a cui le

persone sono chiamate a rispondere. Barriere legate alla razza, alla religione e alla

cultura sono state una sfida reale anche per Gesù e per la prima comunità dei credenti.

Il racconto dell’incontro tra Gesù e la Samaritana (Gv 4,1-42) dimostra una profonda

sensibilità verso la questione del ministero religioso e inter-culturale di Gesù nel suo

dialogo con la donna che gli si rivolge considerandolo uno straniero. I vari temi all’interno

di questo racconto possono fungere da incentivo a incontrare altre persone attraversando

barriere come l’etnia, la religione e l’emarginazione. Una risposta autentica a

Gesù è il fondamento per le relazioni umane e per un comune impegno per la giustizia,

la pace e il servizio degli altri.

Parole chiave: Gesù, donna Samaritana, superamento di barriere, relazione, straniero,

culture, religioni, emarginazione.
