The Church is the Kingdom of God and she is heaven on earth.

The Church is the gathering of the saints, those in heaven and on earth, as one.

For the East, however, the key moment, if one may use that word, is in the* epiklesis,* or the invocation of the Holy Spirit.Fr Schmemann loosely defines a sacrament as embracing the entire mystery of the salvation of the world and mankind by Christ and in essence the entire content of the Christian faith ( 217).
