[quote=Mr. Bean]Okay I am overly confused about what the catholic church teaches about bodily resurection. Is it a real physical body or something else. Also does this occur only at the end of the world? (Apocolypis) And how does this relate to the idea of heaven being the place that we go when we die and that the saints are currently in heaven.
Yes, it is a real physical body, but glorified. This glorification involves a change, but no one knows what the change involves.
For most of us, this will occur at the end of the world. There have been exceptions, like Jesus at his Ascenion, Mary at her Assumption, Elijiah when ascended in a flaming chariot, and a number of people who rose after Jesus was crucified (Matt 27:52).
Most of the saints currently in heaven are there only as their souls. They await the resurrection of their bodies.
