The Hidden God

Insights into a Mystery

John C. Portavella


According to Fr. Portavella, life is a test for which purpose God endowed free will to man. To ensure the enjoyment of freedom and responsibility, the Almighty refrains from making His presence obvious or too forcefully felt. He wants children, not slaves. The ultimate reason for God’s hiding and His silence is His love. The surprising answer to the query why He hides is that He loves his creature so much.
