Knowledge through Love

JacquesIn Christian contemplation our intelligence is supremely alive, in a nocturnal darkness more instructive than any concept: blind as to its natural mode of operation, intelligence knows only by virtue of the connaturality that love creates between the soul who loves and the God it loves, a God who loves it first.
Jacques Maritain (1882–1973)
