And so, we see that in God's οικονομ1α those of us who still struggle in this deathly realm of being gauged by who we know, who knows us, our wealth, status, doxa (glory) and fama (fame), we are not so judged in the life-giving realm of God's Kingdom. In the Kingdom of God and, by grace infused extenstion, in the Church, we all stand on level ground at the foot of the Cross and before the eternal sacrifice of the Mass. We simply have differing rôles to play in the divine theodrama (von Balthasar), whether we are elves, dwarves, men, or hobbits ...
...in God's Kingdom the presence of the greatest does not depress the small. Redeemed Man is still man. Story, fantasy, still goes on, and should go on. The Evangelium has not abrogated the legends; it has hallowed them, especially the "happy ending". The Christian has still to work, with mind as well as body, to suffer, hope, and die; but he may now perceive that all his bents and faculties have a purpose which can be redeemed. 
Our "ontological substantiation" comes from participating and assisting in the Most Blessed Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist. It is the "source and summit" of the Catholic Church; it is the headwaters of all grace to the many Christianities downstream of Her; it is the greatest treasure for all who cherish the Church that Jesus Christ founded for us and our salvation.
"Ordinary Christians" is a noble title. There is none nobler in the realm of God's Kingdom of light and life.
