Pope Francis has declared that the Resurrection is no mere metaphor. We can all breathe a sigh of relief.
At a morning Mass in the chapel of the Domus Sanctae Marthae, Francis said Christians should not succumb to heresies that reduce the Resurrection to some “spiritual experience”..
He said: “A spiritualistic piety, a nuanced piety is much easier; but to enter into the logic of the flesh of Christ, this is difficult. And this is the logic of the day after tomorrow. We will resurrect like the risen Christ, with our own flesh.”
