Why we live

“The meaning of existence can only reach its fulfillment within the ultimate and eternal life, of a life that is transcendent and free from all monotony of repetition and from all relativity. Only on that plane can our life develop to infinity within an endless newness which is, at the same time, a continuous fullness” (Staniloae, 1994, The experience of God: Revelation and knowledge of the Triune God, p. 8).
