Moral perfection is not enough for man. It is not enough for us simply to become better than before, simply to perform moral deeds. We have as our final aim to unite with holy God Himself. This is the purpose of the creation of the universe. This is what we desire. This is our joy, our happiness, and our fulfillment...
Each of us is an image of God, and God is our prototype. The image seeks the prototype, and only when it finds it does it find rest.
+Archimandrite George of St. Gregorios, from Theosis, The True Purpose of Human Life
