“There is a dimension to life that is not fully knowable simply by our rational capacities. I love reason, I love science, but reason doesn’t explain to me what it feels like to kiss my wife.”
I know what it is like to kiss my wife, even though neither science nor reason can truly explain those feelings.
Is it so strange for me to extrapolate Thomas’ “feelings” a little bit further? Isn’t it also true that neither science nor reason can truly explain how it feels to me to be Kissed by the Spirit of God?
