THE ELEVENTH ARTICLE: "The Resurrection of the Body."

 

Not only does the Holy Spirit sanctify the Church as regards the souls of

its members, but also our bodies shall rise again by His power: "We believe

in Him that raised up Jesus Christ, Our Lord, from the dead."1 And: "By a

man came death: and by a Man the resurrection of the dead."2 In this there

occur four considerations: (1) the benefits which proceed from our faith in

the resurrection; (2) the qualities of those who shall rise, taken all in

general; (3) the condition of the blessed; (4) the condition of the damned.

 

 




1. Rom., iv. 24.

 



2. I Cor., xv. 21. "In this Article the resurrection of mankind is called

'the resurrection of the body.' The Apostles had for object thus to convey

an important truth, the immortality of the soul. Lest, therefore, contrary

to the Sacred Scripturess, which in many places clearly teach the soul to

be immortal, any one may imagine that it dies with the body, and denies

that both are to be raised up, the Creed speaks only of 'the resurrection

of the body' " ("Roman Catechism," Eleventh Article, 2).
