From Father Fasching:
All four evangelists expressly mention that the body of Christ was buried. Saint Paul also reiterates this fact in his letter to the Corinthians, which was written very soon after the time, thereby confirming a tradition which had come down from the beginning. The fact that Christ’s body was buried eliminates any doubt about His death, hence the miracle of the Resurrection. The resurrection of Jesus Christ is one of the essential doctrines of the Catholic faith. Jesus Christ rose by His own power, re-joining His soul with his body, and leaving the tomb with His same human body. This body was not merely the appearance of a body, but the same as it was when it was dead and buried, although after the resurrection Christ’s body was glorified and now had certain special properties. The Resurrection is therefore an objective, physical event as evidenced by the empty tomb. Our entire faith is based upon it.
