In these pages, the wise Mexican mystic, Archbishop Luis Martinez, unlocks for you the secrets to the interior life, showing how you can enter into an intense, sustained communion with God.
God alone knows the mysteries of His intimate life, and He alone can reveal it to you. Through our own efforts, we can attain some knowledge of God, but we cannot come to know the mystery of His intimate life unless He reveals it to us.
To find God, says Martinez, we have to seek Him, but through His ways, not ours. With the wise spirituality of St. John of the Cross and St. Therese of Lisieux as your guide, Worshipping a Hidden God shows you how to live in the “obscurity of faith” — the light which infallibly leads you to God.
You’ll learn how to become detached from both consolations and desolations, leaving behind the perturbations of the world that shake the faith of those who don’t.
Bishop Martinez doesn’t offer new rules of prayer or demand that you abandon the forms of meditation that suit you. He simply reminds you that our God is a hidden God which can be found only through the gaze of faith.
Says Martinez: “Once you know how to profit from faith and to live by faith, you will always find God. You will have solved your problem; you will have discovered the great secret of the interior life.”
