Saint Ignatius of Loyola’s Vision of Christ and God the Father at La Storta, by Domenico Zampieri (known as Domenichino), 1622

“God freely created us so that we might know, love, and serve him in this life and be happy with him forever. God’s purpose in creating us is to draw forth from us a response of love and service here on earth, so that we may attain our goal of everlasting happiness with him in heaven.”

St. Ignatius of Loyola
