Even though your soul may still be uncertain, being shaken and confused by earthly passions, toss the anchor of your hope toward the eternal homeland now, fortify the resolutions of your soul in the true light. Here we have heard that the Lord ascended into heaven. Therefore, let us always meditate on what we believe in.
Gregory the Great
Homilies, 2, 29, 11
