It makes perfect sense when you think about it:

SCG, I, c. 45:

Every substance exists for the sake of its operation

…so just as matter exists for the sake of form, so form, which is [being] in first act, exists for the sake of operation, which is [being] in second act. Operation is thus the end of a created thing.

ST, I q.105, a 5

Man exists for the sake of Science and moral virtue. In a virtuous man, one encounters the fullness of a man.
