If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.
The Christian’s search is always for something beyond this world. That doesn’t mean we ignore the world. But it does mean that we never expect the world to satisfy us completely. Our Long Home is Heaven, not earth. Our task here is to try to make earth conform a bit to Heaven while never demanding that it become Heaven. Those who forget this often end up making earth look like hell. Those who remember it find that, in the sacraments, the things of earth point naturally to Christ, who is “seated at the right hand of God” in Heaven. Today, seek the things above.
IMPORTANT NOTICE TO OUR READERS
Catholic Exchange is free—but it is not free to produce. Advertising revenue covers only a fraction of the cost to generate reliably Catholic commentary and news, inspiring videos, a selection of the best Catholic blogs, and daily meditations and prayers.
To give us the strength and stability we need, Catholic Exchange is turning to you—our loyal reader—and asking you to become a monthly contributor.
Whether you can give $5 or $25, $50 or $100 each month, please leave something behind so we can continue—and strengthen—this important apostolate.
We are deeply grateful for one-time gifts, but we encourage you to choose “Monthly” on the drop-down menu. Your support will ensure that Catholic Exchange will be here during this most critical moment for the Church and America.
