1st Reading 1 Corinthians 15:12-20

Now if Christ, be preached, that he arose again from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no resurrrection of the dead? But if there be no resurrection of the dead, the Christ isn not risen again. And if Christ be not reisen again, then is our preaching in vain, and your faith is also vain. Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God: because we have given testimony against God, that he hath raised up Christ; whom he hath not raised up, if the dead rise not again. For the dead rise not again, neither is Christ risen again. And if Christ be not risen again, your faith is in vain, for you are yet in your sins. Then they also that are fallen asleep in Christ, are perished. If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable. But now Christ  is risen from the dead, the firstfruits of them that sleep.

Gospel according to Luke 8:1-3

And it came to pass afterwards, that he traveled through the cities and towns,  preaching and evangelizing the kingdom of God; amd the twelve with him: And certain women who had been healed of evil spirits and informities; Mary who is called Magdalen, out of whom seven devils were gone forth. And Joanna the wife of Chusa, Herod’s steward, and Susanna, and many others who ministered unto him of there substance.

Catechism of the Catholic Church 996

From the beginning, Christian faith in the resurrection has met with incomprehension and opposition. On no point does the Christian faith encounter more opposition than on the resurrection.of the body. It is very commonly accepted that fashion after death. But how can we believe that this body, so clearly mortal, could rise to everlasting life?
