All rational creatures, whether angels or men,
have within them the capacity to know
and the capacity to love.
In the exercise of the power of knowledge
God must ever remain incomprehensible.
Whereas, in the exercise of love
he may be fully comprehended.
So much so that a loving soul,
by virtue of love, may comprehend him
who is all sufficient to fill all the souls of men
and angels that could ever be.
This is the marvellous unending miracle of love.

” God is neither this nor that.”
September 17, 2008
“We need then to rediscover Christianity as a religion without religion that focuses upon the miracle of faith as that which transforms our subjectivity to such an extent that we do not need the law (which causes us to move towards sin), but which overcomes the law with love. For love fulfils the law by transcending it. Here everything is permissible even though not everything is beneficial.”
(I highly recommend this book by Peter Rollins)
