Cyril of Alexandria: “For heaven was then utterly inaccessible to mortal man”

Dover Beach

Cyril of  Alexandria.jpg“For heaven was then utterly inaccessible to mortal man, and no flesh as yet had ever trodden that pure and all-holy realm of the angels; but Christ was the first Who consecrated for us the means of access to Himself, and granted to flesh a way of entrance into heaven; presenting Himself as an offering to God the Father, as it were the firstfruits of them that are asleep and are lying in the tomb, and the first of mankind that ever appeared in heaven.”

–  St. Cyril of  Alexandria
