Father Spitzer explains the importance of the resurrection of soul and body.
In his first letter to the church in Corinth, Paul talks about the differences between our earthly bodies and our resurrected bodies (see 1 Corinthians 15:35-54). Contrasting our earthly bodies with the splendor of our heavenly (resurrected) bodies, Paul says, “The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable; it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body” (vv. 42-44, emphasis added). In summary, our resurrected bodies are spiritual, imperishable, and raised in glory and power.
And we will have those bodies for eternity and reside in the New Heaven and New earth.
