How to use bodily in a sentence?

  1. Francis Cardinal George, OMI:

    Jesus rose bodily from the dead. His whole person is with God, but he is still in contact with the world, with each of us. Jesus is with the Father and the Holy Spirit, but he is constantly acting on us in the world. Free of all the bonds of space and time, the risen Jesus can be wherever he wants to be. And he wants to be with us.

  2. Clive Lewis:

    Spiritual nature, like bodily nature, will be served; deny it food and it will gobble poison.

  3. Nisha Verma:

    Misinformation can be harmful because it may lead people to try to end their pregnancies in an unsafe way, potentially exposing them to serious bodily harm. While people can self-manage their abortions in a safe way, spreading misinformation about unsafe methods of abortion is incredibly dangerous.

  4. James Grover Thurber:

    But those rare souls whose spirit gets magically into the hearts of men, leave behind them something more real and warmly personal than bodily presence, an ineffable and eternal thing. It is everlasting life touching us as something more than a vague, recondite concept. The sound of a great name dies like an echo the splendor of fame fades into nothing but the grace of a fine spirit pervades the places through which it has passed, like the haunting loveliness of mignonette.

  5. Deanne Carson:

    I gave an interview the other day about teaching consent to young children, sadly, some people have chosen to ridicule me( oh no ! Pink hair ! Must be a lesbian !) and the notion of giving infants bodily autonomy( poo in nappies har har amiright ?!).
