Worshipping a Hidden God

Unlocking the Secrets of the Interior Life

$14.95

About this item

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.”

To know, love, and worship God
I highly recommend this book, especially if you want to grow closer to God and love Him completely. It will help you get rid of the things of this world that are hindrances to accomplishing that. It is one of the best books I have read.

Interesting
Archbishop Martinez writes like someone who has truly been down this road and knows what he is talking about, which left me wishing I could learn more about his life.

A treasure of wisdom
This book speaks with much wisdom about issues that are not easy to write about: humility, suffering, and spiritual trials. This may not be a beginner's book - it offers guidance for individual who has experienced struggles in a life of prayer and needs encouragement and solid direction to stay focused.

An exceptional spiritual Gem!
I think that this wonderful book "turns the world's thought processes upside down" and should be a must reading for every Christian. Especially in Western Society, where we are "so concerned" with impression management and upward mobility, keeping up with the Jones's, etc. I'm not going to spoil the secret but essentially paradoxes about the spiritual life (the true one, I believe) that is hidden within the pages of this book. If I had only 2 books to have in my upstairs library, this one would be one of them!

A wonderful guide to the spiritual life
A wonderful guide to the spiritual life. Easy to read, small and convenient to use--but the content, above all, is excellent. Especially if your prayer life is somewhat advanced, and particularly if you are suffering desolation, dryness, and aridity in the midst of your fidelity to prayer, you will find this book comforting and instructive.
