Vincent is in a feeling groove - all of his strong intuitions emanate from a reservoir of strong emotion - passion.

Serving God in the mode of passion is dangerous. Passion is a force which all too often degenerates into pure malice and rage.

I like Vincent because I sense that he is a good person at heart - but emotions are a good servant and a poor master.

Meditating on God, serenity and eternity is far more healthy than spinning into orbits of rationally-flimsy conjecture.

This would probably be a good time for anyone who hasn't read it yet to pick up a copy of Pat Conroy's Beach Music, or his Great Santini.

Or if your in a really dark mood, Gene Wolfe's Urth of the New Sun pentology, or CS Lewis Space Trilogy. .
