Josef Pieper's Three Things to Remember

1. Things are TRUE because they are real.

2. Things can be KNOWN because they are created.

3. Things are UNFATHOMABLE (mysterious) because they are created.

(selections 33-35, from Josef Pieper: An Anthology (Forward by Hans Urs von Balthasar) San Francisco: Ignatius Press, 1989.)

makes me think of Chesterton's quote
'there is always hope that a man will think logically if he is theological.' or words to that effect.

Babbette's Feast. Great movie.
