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?
