‘Hidden’ & ‘Secret’
For there is nothing hidden except to be made visible. Nothing is secret except to come to light (Mark 4).
In the spiritual tradition of the Church – which is exactly what we should be offering people today – we find this remarkable statement:
The Word, the Son of God, together with the Father and the Holy Spirit, is hidden, in essence and in presence, in the inmost being of the soul (St. John of the Cross, Spiritual Canticle, Stanza I).
God is hidden. God is secret.
He is within us.
Might we take time to find him?
