During mass priest says a pray “in hope of rising again” I thought when a person dies his soul immediately left his body and went either to heaven,hell or purgatory and on the last day his body rises from the grave and joins with his soul
Both are correct, ie the prayer is that all who have lived in the Body of Christ, will one day have their bodies re-united with their souls, and (Deo Volente) be forever with God in heaven. While the soul goes through the individual or particular judgement, when our souls and bodies are re-united we will go through the General Judgement, where all the secrets of our lives, good and evil will be made known, and (if we go to heaven) we will have glorified bodies, like that of our Lord after His resurrection.
