We Get A New Body!

by Father Brian J. Soliven on Sunday November 6, 2022

Few people realize this fact; we're going to get a new body! When Jesus finally returns in the Second Coming, scripture tells us that the Lord will raise up the dead and reunite our souls and bodies. It will be unlike our bodies of old, however. As strange as this teaching about the resurrection is, in many ways, we all intuitively desire it. We spend billions of dollars to improve our current decaying bodies, with makeup, medication, gym memberships, organic food etc. Even if were blessed with supermodel good looks or the body of an olympic athlete, we all grow old! The wrinkles come, we lose our hair, our knee joints ache in pain. This future body of ours gives us the confidence to face death when it eventually comes for us all.
