The Assumption is an Antidote to Reincarnation

The Catholic News Agency (CNA) is reporting that during his homily on the Feast of the Assumption, Bishop Munilla of San Sebastian, Spain, said the dogma of the Assumption is “an antidote to beliefs in reincarnation” because it reminds us that death produces the separation of body and soul, but at the same time underscores that “faith in our resurrection at the end of time is the greatest characteristic of Christian hope.”

He went on to explain: “After this life, we are called to participate in the eternal life of God with our entire being: body and soul. The redemption of Christ hasn’t only brought salvation to the spiritual dimension of being human, but also to the corporal dimension,” he said. “Our goal is to arrive at the joy of God with all of our being, body and spirit, as the Virgin Mary has in advance. A good antidote to the belief in reincarnation, which is clearly incompatible with Biblical revelation, is found here.”

He went on to invite all Catholics to grow in the faith and to make an effort to understand the religious concepts behind these dogmas in order to avoid falling into “simplistic caricatures.”
