Why we need relate to God

“Communion with the infinite Persons . . . [is for man] infinite progress in love and knowledge . . . [for] if the meaning of his own existence . . . were not carried on into eternity, in order to be eternally deepened, the meaning of our existence would appear to us as devoid of any real sense” (Staniloae, 1994, The experience of God: Revelation and knowledge of the Triune God, p. 6).
