Mystery and Method: The Other in Rahner and Levinas

By Michael Purcell | Go to book overview

ENDNOTES
1
Vatican I affirms vera et proprie dicta mysteria, which can only be known through divine revelation, in its Canons against liberal philosophical and theological schools (Cf. DS3041), but the provisional incomprehensibility of such mysteries, of which Rahner speaks, is also affirmed in DS3015. Knowledge manifests a twofold order, both in principle and object. In principle, because the human subject knows by faith and by reason; in object, because there are mysteries which can be probed by reason, and those which are hidden by God until and unless he chooses to reveal them. Such a limitation of reason, however, is linked to our pilgrim state, and will eventually be overcome. Ac ratio quidem, fide illustrata, cum sedulo, pie et sobrie quaerit, aliquam Deo dante mysteriorum intelligentiam eamque fructuosissimam assequitur tum ex eorum, quae naturaliter cognoscit, analogia, tum e mysteriorum ipsorum nexu inter se et cum fine hominis ultimo; numquam tamen idonea redditur ad ea perspicienda instar veritatum, quae proprium ipsius obiectum constituunt. Divina enim mysteria suapte natura intellectum creatum sic excedunt, ut etiam revelatione tradita et fide suscepta ipsius tamen fidei velamine contecta et quadam quasi caligine obvoluta maneant, quamdiu in hac mortali vita "peregrinamur a Domino: per fidem enim ambulamus et non per speciem" ( 2 Cor 5, 6s) (DS3016; "Constitutio dogmatico "Dei Filius" de fide catholica," Session III, 24 April, 1870).
