Our bodies help us love God. That is why God created us with bodies.
We can do good things with our bodies. We can help a friend. We can give hugs. We can say nice things. We can take care of a pet or flowers. There are so many good things we can do.
There are many bad things we can do with our bodies, too. We can make fun of someone. We can hit or yell when we are angry. We can take toys from others.
What we do with our bodies is very important. When we act good or bad, it tells God and other people what our soul looks like. This is why we try very hard to follow God’s rules with our bodies. How we use our bodies will help decide where we go when we die.
When we die, our souls go to Jesus. Our bodies stay on Earth. At the end of time, Jesus will come back to Earth. He does this to bring our bodies back to our souls. This is called the Resurrection of the Body.
Do you remember that Jesus came to the Apostles after He rose from the dead? Jesus came to them with His body and His soul. He was teaching us about the Resurrection of the Body.
People who go to Heaven have glorified bodies. Their body is perfect. There is no sickness. There are no cuts or bruises. No one needs glasses or braces. Their body is as perfect as their soul is clean!
People who go to Hell or Purgatory also get their body back. Their bodies suffer with their souls. The people in Purgatory will have a perfect body when they go to Heaven.
