In Heaven

Christ Jesus, truly human, truly divine, is seated at God's right hand. He has taken our flesh to heaven. Earth and heaven are one. This is marvelously expressed in a hymn we sing these days.

Yes, angels tremble when they see
How changed is our humanity;
That flesh has purged what flesh has stained
And God, the flesh of God, has reigned
