Easter Mini-Course Video #7: What will our resurrected bodies be like?
What will our resurrected bodies be like?
At each Mass, we Christians affirm our belief in “the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come.”
We believe not only in Jesus’ Resurrection, but in the resurrection of our own bodies at the end of time.
But what will this be like? What form will our bodies take?
Watch this short video for a glimpse:
"The education about our faith that Bishop Robert Barron shares against the backdrop of places in Rome and Jerusalem where biblical events occurred, brings so much more depth and understanding of scripture. I look forward to these each week...the videography of these places I haven't visited is quite breathtaking. You feel like you are right there with him...and want to learn more."

An excerpt from
POPE FRANCIS: REJOICE AND BE GLAD
CHAPTER ONE: THE CALL TO HOLINESS
THE LORD CALLS
11. “Each in his or her own way” the Council says. We should not grow discouraged before examples of holiness that appear unattainable. There are some testimonies that may prove helpful and inspiring, but that we are not meant to copy, for that could even lead us astray from the one specific path that the Lord has in mind for us. The important thing is that each believer discern his or her own path, that they bring out the very best of themselves, the most personal gifts that God has placed in their hearts (cf.
12:7), rather than hopelessly trying to imitate something not meant for them. We are all called to be witnesses, but there are many actual ways of bearing witness.
Indeed, when the great mystic, Saint John of the Cross, wrote his
, he preferred to avoid hard and fast rules for all. He explained that his verses were composed so that everyone could benefit from them “in his or her own way”.
For God’s life is communicated “to some in one way and to others in another”.
