This transcends reason, nature, and experience

Jesus said to her [Mary Magdalen]: 
"Do not touch me, for I am not yet ascended to my Father" (John 20:17).
He meant: 

Depend no longer on this fallible sense.
Put your trust in the word, get used to faith.
 Faith cannot be deceived. 

With the power to understand invisible truths,  
faith does not know the poverty of the senses.
It transcends even the limits of human reason, 

the capacity of nature, the bounds of experience.

St. Bernard of Clairvaux
