“Thomas is a mystic adoring the mystery beyond all possibility of expression…. Thomas knows that the highest precision and sober objective accuracy of true theology ultimately serve only one purpose: to force the individual out of the lucid clarity of his existence into the mystery of God where he no longer grasps but is grasped, where he no longer reasons but adores, where he does not master but is overpowered.”

– Karl Rahner, THE GREAT CHURCH YEAR (1987), p. 317
