What does Catholic Theology say about how it is possible for us to know God?

Are the proofs of God's existence as expressed by Aquinas part of knowing? Or are they just a natural scientific series of steps?

Are proofs really necessary or can theology take us straight into the understanding of the word knowing in terms of what God reveals to us through the OT and then made more explicit later when Jesus comes into this world historically through His Incarnation?

Thankyou Mike K

I appreciate your input.

I think that in Heaven we are hopeless( in the good sense fo the word, not in any forlorn way or depression); and also faithless ( in the sense that we have full certainty when having reached the final eternal destination with the Beatific Vision). All that remains is love.
I am going by what I heard a priest say.

Hey three Michael's; and one Wayne !

We need two more Wayne's. LOL
