They all rose bodily -- except Jesus?
Fortunately, at least Father McBrien did end up by saying, "the Church's traditional affirmation of faith...is that [the Resurrection] is the foundation of our hope in our own bodily resurrection into eternal life."
We should ask Father McBrien what he thinks about the other "resurrections" that the Evangelists reported: Christ's raising bodily from the dead the daughter of Jairus ((Matthew 9:18-26), the son of the widow of Naim (Luke 7:11-17) and Lazarus (John 11:1-44). Were they fact or metaphor, real or symbol?
We also should ask Cardinal Mahony and the editorial board of The Tidings to replace Father McBrien with a far more solid columnist; not that we haven't asked them that repeatedly.
Resuscito, resuscito, resuscito, alelulla!
