Henri de Lubac, The Discovery of God


All our representations of the divine are woven of elements taken from our world, whether from the natural or the social world; but there is a faculty or power in man which always drives him on beyond them: the power of reason itself. That is because in his most intimate being, made in the image of God, there is always something which he is quite unable to represent to himself, though he is not without experience of it. 'He bears within himself a source of wonder, a source of infinite self-transcendence.' And that, in the last analysis, is what allows him to know God in truth. Abyssus abyssum invocat (abyss calls to abyss).
