“What Has Been Hidden”
We acknowledge, O God, that Jesus speaks the truth that was previously hidden; we furthermore acknowledge, O God, that Jesus reveals that truth in ways and in words the hearing and understanding of which require an insight that comes only by grace through faith.
Open our eyes, hearts and minds to that grace, to that faith, to that understanding—to that truth.
“Jesus told the crowds all these things in parables; without a parable he told them nothing. This was to fulfill what had been spoken through the prophet: ‘I will open my mouth to speak in parables; I will proclaim what has been hidden from the foundation of the world.’” (Matthew 13:34-35)
