“When the Pharisees heard that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together, and one of them, a scholar of the law, tested him by asking, ‘Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?’” (MT 22: 34-36)
We can ask questions, not to understand something new and difficult, but to test somebody. We ask questions like “would you like some coffee or tea?” because we want coffee or tea or something else. You expect that your spouse will learn something from you and will do it for you next time. And we also can test by asking to prove that he/she forgot, that it was not important to her/him, that she/he only thought about herself/himself. When we ask, because we love, we reach different results.
“Teach me your paths, my God, guide me in your truth.” (Gospel Acclamation)
