Kresta in the Afternoon – November 24, 2020 – Hour 2

The Christian Meaning of Death and Resurrection (full hour)

As Catholics, we honor the dead in our Liturgy through the Rite of Christian burial because when Christ took on flesh for the salvation of our souls he also bestowed great dignity on our bodies. Our bodies have been made by a God who loves us. Even in death, those bodies point to the mystery of our salvation. Scott Hahn joins us.
