Theological humility, spiritual hunger

"Now, if anyone should ask me now this [the believer's tasting of the risen Christ at the Lord's Table] takes place, I shall not be ashamed to confess that it is a secret too lofty for either my mind to comprehend or my words to declare. And, to speak more plainly, I rather experience than understand it."

Calvin, Institutes, 4.17.32.
