"The intelligibility of God is so bright, according to the great Catholic mystics, it overwhelms our minds with darkness, and can only be penetrated by the will"

Yes, I too read that exact sentence quite a few times trying to discern something meaningful. Most of the article is foggy and impenetrable. So much so, I halfway enjoyed the anticipation of the challenge of trying to re-read it because surely, the payoff (understanding) would be worth my time. Well, I was fooled. Grrrr.

I'm curious if Thomas Jackson's peers are all "high-fiving" themselves after reading this or like most of here, think the writer didn't take enough time and effort to communicate better.
