The Church praises Him who became man, who suffered and died and rose again, and overcame the kingdom of the underworld in His descent into hell. He is the strong, the mighty, the undying. He comes himself. He comes to the Church, attended by the armies of His angel princes. Thus heaven is opened for the believers. They hear and see the choir of singing angels.
