An essential part of our eternal happiness, beauty, energy

"Christianity is almost the only one of the great religions which thoroughly approves of the body -- which believes that matter is good, that God Himself once took on a human body, that some kind of body is going to be given to us even in Heaven and is going to be an essential part of our happiness, our beauty, and our energy."

C. S. Lewis, Mere Christianity, page 77.

May God be glorified through his gift of our bodies -- which he certainly will be.
