The greatest secret is the Good News of Salvation. It is a secret hidden in plain sight for all to see. It is a secret because many people are blinded by modernity’s philosophy of self-determination and inevitable progress.
Yet those blinded by modernity are constantly asking the inevitable questions of “what is the meaning of life, why are we here, where did we come from, where are we going and is there life after death?”
Scripture is not a science book but it is the (secret) source and answers to all these questions. Questions that science cannot answer.
God has revealed this secret to us in Salvation History as a long but continuous divine pedagogy.
“In times past, God spoke in partial and various ways to our ancestors through the prophets; in these days, he spoke to us through a Son, whom he made heir of all things and through whom he created the universe.”
I don’t know about you, but that is science to my ears!
