O come Emanuel…

b_300_300_16777215_00_images_stories_Szep_Termeszet_napsutes-k.jpgChrist’s second coming will be at the end of time as well. The Church is also awaiting that our Lord Jesus Christ will come again and be visibly with us for ever .

During the time of Advent we especially think about this a lot , singing “adveniat , “ Come  our Saviour !” We are longing for this . We believe that the time will come when Christ will be all in everything. When not only Saint Paul can say humbly that :" I no longer live, but Christ lives in me “ ( Galatians 2, 20) , but when everyman , everything that lives can say this .
Then will be the last judgement , when we will be measured judged by our love and deeds , and this will be obvious for all. When our earthly remains will be resurrected . Jesus was not acting in a play when He went up to heaven , a heavenly show , but His physical body , His wounds, His hair , His hands, eyes , His tears were indeed glorified. The Church is also proclaiming the the Blessed Virgin was also taken up body and soul into the Kingdom of Heaven . Similarly to them our atoms, cells , bones will also be glorified .
