Christ’s Exaltation is Man’s Exaltation

Here are some things that Angelus Silesius had to say.

CW I.202.  Evaluation
What God must think I’m worth!  He leaps from His high throne
And sets me there in Christ as if it were my own.

CW III.203.  Man is great before God.
How great we have become!  The highest Seraphim
Go veiled before our God; but we go nude to Him.
