The goal of all who pursue the spiritual path is to do the will of Christ, their

God, to be reconciled with the Father through communion in the Spirit, and

so to achieve their salvation.  For only in this way is the soul’s salvation

attained. And if it is not attained, our labor is fatuous and our work vain.

Every path of life is pointless that does not lead the person pursuing it to

this consummation.
