Our Exalted Advocate

Christ is our Mediator not only in that He once reconciled us to God and gained for us grace and salvation, but in this sense that He evermore lives on with God, as Head of the Church as our Advocate.  To Him the faithful belong but, as they proudly confess, He is now elevated to the right hand of God.

—Josef A. Jungmann, The Place of Christ in Liturgical Prayer, 135
