A: The Eleventh Article of the Creed teaches us that all men will rise again, every soul resuming the body it had in this life.
A: The resurrection of the dead will be accomplished by the virtue of the Omnipotent God, to whom nothing is impossible.
A: The resurrection of the dead shall take place at the end of the world, and shall be followed by the General Judgment.
A: God wills the resurrection of the body, in order that the soul, having done good or evil while united with the body, may also be rewarded or punished along with it.
A: No, there will be a vast difference between the bodies of the elect and the bodies of the damned; because only the bodies of the elect shall have, like the risen Christ, the endowments of glorified bodies.
A: The endowments that shall adorn the bodies of the elect are: (1) Impassability, by which they can never again be subject to evil, nor to any kind of pain, nor to need of food, of rest or the like; (2) Brightness, by which they shall shine as the sun and as so many stars; (3) Agility, by which they shall be able to pass in a moment and without fatigue from one place to another and from earth to heaven; (4) Subtlety, by which without hindrance they shall be able to penetrate any body, as did Jesus Christ when risen from the dead.
A: The bodies of the damned shall be destitute of all the endowments of the glorified bodies of the blessed, and shall bear upon them the appalling mark of eternal reprobation.
