By doing so, He exalted our human nature, thus taking us with Him so that we too could sit at God’s right hand. This means we will surpass even the angels from our place over all creation. Jesus has gone to prepare this place for us.
Having been victorious in his humanity, Jesus received glory from the Father and by taking humankind with Him, He, together with us, glorifies the Father.
The ascension allows us to ever more deeply enter into the Beatific Vision. Jesus uplifted humanity in the ascension and made it possible for us humans to enter into the Holy Trinity to partake of God’s awesome divinity, where we will rapturously see the light of His face.
