HIDDEN TRUTH

In Revelation, a book is shown that is sealed with seven seals. If you gave it to someone learned and say, "Read this," he would answer, "I can't because it is sealed."

There are many today who consider themselves learned, yet the Scriptures are a sealed book to them. They can't open it without the help of Him who has the key of David. "He that openeth and no man shutteth; and shutteth and no man openeth."

In the Acts of the Apostles there was a holy eunuch. When he was reading Isaiah, Philip asked him, "Understandest thou what thou readest?" He answered, "How can I except some man should guide me?" Then Philip came and showed him Jesus who was concealed in the letters.

What an excellent teacher! That same hour, the eunuch believed and was baptized. He became one of the faithful and became a saint. 

He wasn't a student any longer but a master. And he found more in the Church's writings there in the wilderness than he had ever found in the gilded temple of the synagogue...

It is useless to try to teach what you don't know, and -- if I may speak with some warmth -- is worse still to be ignorant of your ignorance. 

St. Jerome
