quote for the weekend… "be" the luminous darkness

“The act of being [(esse)] St. Thomas contemplates derives neither from metaphysics nor from ontology nor even from the [Heideggerian] ‘question of being’, but from the divine names and the ‘luminous darkness’.”

Jean-Luc Marion, “Saint Thomas d’Aquin et l’onto-théologie,” Revue Thomiste 95 (1995): 66.
