When you think about it,
it isn’t just we who hide from God.
God also hides from us.

The mystics describe God
as “Deus absconditus“–
He is a God Who hides.

Holy Thu online.027

We believe that God is all-powerful and infinite.
Our senses and concepts can never capture Him
because He is always greater.

This utter transcendence of God
keeps Him hidden from us.

Our faith tells us
that God’s presence is everywhere;
but our sense of His Presence
is quite limited.
We often don’t experience Him.

It is for this reason
that it’s not all that easy to pray.
Prayer requires effort.

How do you feel about
the God Who hides?
