Bishop Barron on the reality of life after death

I just thought I’d share one of Bishop Barron’s recent videos because I found it particularly interesting. He speaks about the Catholic Christian view of life after death, and its evolution throughout the Old and the New Testaments.

Our dominant secularist or materialist ideology says that matter in motion is all there is; the world came into being, and eventually it will pass out of being. On the other hand, an awful lot of Christians hold to something more Platonic than biblical, thinking of the afterlife as the soul escaping from the body to a purely spiritual place called heaven. But the biblical hope is for the resurrection of the body.
