some to everlasting life, and some to disgrace and everlasting shame.
Those who understand shall shine like the brightness of the firmament,
and some who are righteous, like the stars of heaven forever and ever.
(Dan 12:2-3, OSB)
God, foreknowing human unbelief, has given to the smallest worms
to emit from their bodies beams of light in the summer,
that natural fluorescence might be a parable of what we expect…
He who makes the worm shine luminously will much more illuminate the just person.
Therefore, we shall rise again, all with eternal bodies, though not all with like bodies.
A just person will receive a heavenly body, to dwell worthily with the angels,
whereas the sinner will receive an eternal body and so never be consumed,
though it burn eternally in fire.
