The great Doctor of the Church, Saint Augustine, wrote:
"Today our Lord Jesus Christ ascended into heaven; let our hearts ascend with him.
Listen to the words of the Apostle: If you have risen with Christ, set your hearts on the things that are above where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God; seek the things that are above, not the things that are on earth.
For just as he remained with us even after his ascension, so we too are already in heaven with him, even though what is promised us has not yet been fulfilled in our bodies."
Jesus Christ is the Head and we are the members of His Mystical Body. The Bishop of Hippo reminds us that the Head and the Body are the "One Christ." So, if we are one with Christ this is the Feast of every faithful as well.
