The Tri-Corporeality of Christ

The eternal Son is still incarnate as the specific man, Jesus the Christ. That’s true. And it’s true also that this Jesus has specific features that we don’t know.

But Jesus has a triple, not a single, body. His natural body is in heaven, but He has given us a Eucharistic body and a corporate body on earth. He’s left behind His body as food, and His body as the church. [source]
