Faith furnishes a certain but obscure knowledge to the understanding.  In fact it shows us God as inaccessible light, as incomprehensible and infinite Being before whom every natural force gives way.  And it is just for this motive that faith reduces reason to its intrinsic nothingness: to the realization of its impotence and of the grandeur of God.

-St. Teresa Benedicta (Edith Stein)
