You've likely heard the old saying "ignorance is bliss". In general, it means what you don't know can't hurt you.
Christians believe the opposite is true – not knowing can hurt us and others.
In the book of Acts, Peter tells us that those who persecuted Jesus did so out of their ignorance. Not that they were ignorant people, but that they did not understand God's plan.
God longs for us to break out of our ignorance and come to know God's presence in our lives. We can do so by learning more about God and praying for God's guidance, and by attending Mass or services at our place of worship.
We'll find that, in fact, "knowledge is bliss" as we enter into a deeper relationship with God.
