Hidden in Christ

Father Donald Haggerty
"If we desire deeper prayer, should we not also learn [as Jesus did] to pass through the crowds in secret, unnoticed by others, drawing no attention? That desire to be unknown and hidden, concealed from sight, is not simply a monkish inclination. It is an impulse that arises with deeper prayer. This desire has a certain logic in the nature of love. We seek in love a God who has a penchant for hiding himself, and we are drawn to follow him into his own hiding places."
Contemplative Provocations, page 33
