Write to Joyce
Let us look at ourselves in Jesus, my dear, as our mirror, in Jesus who led a hidden life. All His infinite majesty was hidden in the shadows and silence of that modest little workshop in Nazareth. So let us, too, make every effort to lead a completely interior life, hidden in God.– Padre Pio
There are some good things we must do openly so that men may see and praise God. There are deeds that must be done in the light so we can reach those who are in the dark.
But there are some deeds that are better done in secret, good deeds that need to be seen by the holy eyes of God alone. For it is in being hidden that their value is preserved and their purity is unstained, and they become worthy of God’s reward and praise.
When you pray, you shall not be as the hypocrites, for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Most certainly, I tell you, they have received their reward. But you, when you pray, enter into your inner room, and having shut your door, pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. – Matthew 6, WEB
