2. What this life is for

What am I?

  • A material body, which will die;
  • A soul, which will live for ever.

Who made me?

God made me for himself.  He gave me a mind to know him, a heart to love him, and a will to choose him and obey (please) him in this life so that in the end I might see him and enjoy him for ever in Heaven.


Heaven is simply where God is seen, and because he is wonderful beyond all imagining, life with him will be infinite and endless joy.

How is this possible?

God’s own Spirit given at Confirmation and Our Lord’s own living Self given in Holy Communion can change me into his likeness, and thus turn me into my true self as God made me to be.
