“Im Sommer sah man Woelki Amtsgeschäfte mit dem Fahrrad erledigen, er fährt gerne mit U- und S-Bahn …” – so berichtet es heute der Tagesspiegel auf Seite 19 über den Berliner Erzbischof Rainer Maria Woelki. Diese Haltung gefällt mir. Von Jesus selbst wird ja auch immer wieder berichtet, dass er hinauf “ging” oder “wanderte” nach Jerusalem. Die Evangelien sind geradezu geprägt vom Wandern, vom Zu-Fuß-Gehen zwischen der ländlichen Heimat im Norden und der fernen, schwierigen, bis heute so geschichtsgeplagten Großstadt Jerusalem. Hätte Jesus einen PS-starken Dienstwagen benutzt, so hätten sich die Dutzenden von Reisebegegnungen und Pilgergesprächen, aus denen die Evangelien bestehen, nie und nimmer ergeben.  Von Sänften und Tragen, von stolzen PS-starken Mobilen wird nichts berichtet, die waren der reichen Oberschicht vorbehalten. Nur einmal nutzte Jesus in symbolischer Absicht den reisewegerleichternden jungen Esel, der allerdings auch nur – mit zweifelhaftem Rechtsanspruch – entliehen, kein Privatbesitz war.

Und kaum eine Lehre des Jesus ist so eindeutig bezeugt wie die Warnung vor dem Reichtum: “Eher geht ein Reicher durch ein Nadelöhr …!

Dass eine Frau oder ein Mann heute alle ihre Amtsgeschäfte zu Fuß erledigt, ist kaum denkbar, selbst heute, wo die braven BVG-MitarbeiterInnen für bessere Bezahlung streiken und uns sanft zum Wandern und Radfahren, auf den rechten Pfad der Demut also zwingen. Aber das Fahrrad, die Busse und die Bahnen, die Eisenbahn und die Economy-Klasse des Flugzeugs reichen doch während der streikfreien Zeiten in den allermeisten Fällen für einen povero cristiano vollkommen aus.

Ich sehe im Verzicht auf den Privat-PKW, in der Bevorzugung von Fahrrad, Bussen und Bahnen ein kleines, wenn auch untrügliches Zeichen der Öffnung des Menschen zu den Menschen hin. Ich selbst bin dankbar, dass wir – meine Familie und ich – kein Auto mehr haben. Das Fahrrad, Busse und Bahnen ermöglichten mir schon tausende von kleinen und kleinsten Gesprächen, aus denen sich in meinem Geist nach und nach ein lebendiges Bild der Stadt ergibt.

Ein lebendiges Bild der Menschen in unserer Stadt! Genau das wünsche ich von Herzen auch dem Berliner Erzbischof, der heute in einer Messe in der fernen, schwierigen, geschichtsbeladenen Großstadt Rom zum Kardinal erhoben wird. Er sei immer auf gutem Wege!

Berliner Erzbischof : Woelki wird von Papst Benedikt zum Kardinal ernannt – Berlin – Tagesspiegel
Er wohnt mittendrin im Kiez, in einer Dachgeschosswohnung in der Osloer Straße in Wedding. Im Sommer sah man Woelki Amtsgeschäfte mit dem Fahrrad erledigen, er fährt gerne mit U- und S-Bahn und für Fernreisen lieber mit dem Zug als mit Chauffeur und Dienstwagen. Seine Bescheidenheit und Offenheit hat sich bis nach Polen herumgesprochen, wo ihn Zeitungen dafür loben, dass er die Brötchen beim türkischen Bäcker kauft.
