“Man’s purpose, from the moment he is born, is to find God. However, he cannot find Him unless God finds him first. “In Him we live and move.” (Act. 17,28) the passions have shut the eyes of our soul and we cannot see. But when our very loving God turns an affectionate eye towards us, then we awake as if from sleep and begin to seek salvation.” (Elder Joseph the Hesychast)
