05_Elevation of the Body, Physical Healing & Faith Series – Premium Content

Just in time for the All Hallow’s Eve and All Saints feasts: the resurrection of the dead “in their own proper bodies which they now bear” is an infallible dogma, necessary to the Christian faith and handed down to us and confirmed repeatedly in the Scriptures, the Councils, the Creeds, and the Fathers. At the second coming, Jesus “will judge the living and the dead, to render to every person according to his works, both to the reprobate and to the elect. All of them will rise with their own bodies, which they now wear, so as to receive according to their deeds, whether these be good or bad [Rom. 2:6–11]” (Fourth Lateran Council, 1215, constitution 1).

All men will rise again with the same body they had on earth as the supernatural fulfillment of the natural state of man as a soul-body. What might this mean for us physically, now?  

Thank you to my newest Friends of the Show, Jerilyn M (whoa! thank you!); Ruth F; Abby C; and Trish W, for loving and lifting me! Friends of the Show get all Premium Content and monthly meet-ups with Sonja: Our Bible study on the Book of Romans meets tonight!

LOVE the Word® is a Bible study method based on Mary’s own practice: lectio without the Latin. Get the book based on Sonja’s method in the right margin, How to Pray Like Mary.  

L | Listen (Receive the Word via audio or video.)

O | Observe (Connect the passage to your life and recent events.)

Have you ever thought about the fact that your resurrected body will be the same one you are now? Does that change the way you think about your body and the way you take care of it or treat it, and allow others to treat it?

V | Verbalize (Pray about your thoughts and emotions.)

Remembering that He loves you and that you are in His presence, talk to God about the particulars of your O – Observe step. You may want to write your reflections in your LOVE the Word® journal. Or, get a free journal page and guide in the right-hand margin.

E | Entrust (May it be done to me according to your word!)

Precious Blood of Jesus, flow through me. Mary, Mother of Divine Love, take the Precious Blood of Jesus to the throne of God, the Father, and offer it in sweet humble adoration, then send it back flowing by the Holy Spirit as a healing of body, mind, heart, and soul. Grant me complete and total healing as I cooperate with you, Lord Jesus, in the healing of my soul and body as you direct. Amen. +
