[quote=manwhoisthursdy]It’s the same body that will be raised (we hope, for each individual person) on the Last day, after all.
Not quite the same body, actually… but a glorified, spiritual one. From the CCC:
**997 **What is “rising”? In death, the separation of the soul from the body, the human body decays and the soul goes to meet God, while awaiting its reunion with its glorified body. God, in his almighty power, will definitively grant incorruptible life to our bodies by reuniting them with our souls, through the power of Jesus’ Resurrection.
999 How? Christ is raised with his own body: “See my hands and my feet, that it is I myself”;553 but he did not return to an earthly life. So, in him, “all of them will rise again with their own bodies which they now bear,” but Christ “will change our lowly body to be like his glorious body,” into a “spiritual body”:554
In other words, not our frail elderly bodies (should we live that long); or our sick, injured, or otherwise physically deformed bodies (should that be the case at the moment).
I for one am looking forward to getting all my hair back
