Thorn of Eruption

But this expression- to be caught up into the third heaven, to be made a participant in sublime revelations, to sense an inexpressible beatitude- this he [Paul] cannot use and has not used to describe that beautiful joy he shared with others. But that inexpressible beatitude he could not express- alas, and to prevent it, he was given a thorn in the flesh.

The Thorn in the Flesh. Kierkegaard.

‘The thorn,’ Paul says, ‘the thorn is a growth.’ Paul shows me his side. Something poked out not in. Something had something to say, in the thorn, about beauty.
