Text Information:

Despite biblical directives to “honor God with your body” (1 Corinthians 6:20) and “offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God” (Romans 12:1), Christians have often scorned the body, failing to see how the mystery of the Incarnation continues in each person.
