WHO HAS BODIES IN PARADISE?

***

Jesus and Mary —

All the rest receive bodies

On Day of Judgment

***

NOTE: Dante has heard that Saint James’ soul was allowed to rise to Paradise with his body, so he stares at Saint James, but Saint James’ soul is so bright that it blinds Dante. Saint James, however, tells Dante that only Jesus and Mary have souls in Paradise now. On the Day of Judgment, everyone else, including those souls in the Inferno and on the Mountain of Purgatory, will receive their souls.
