As far as my understanding goes, 难念的经refers to the difficulties, thorny issues, worries, hard-to-tackle priorities,etc, of the family. Thus a "skeleton", "shame" could be  难念的经, but not vice versa. 难念的经 puts a lot emphasis on "难" and may not have to do with "being secretive".  " A sutra hard to recite" is often the less-known aspect of a family not because the family keeps it secret, but because  their neighbors, believing that the other side of the grass is greener, choose to overlook it.
If winter comes, can spring be frozen ahead?
