St. Paul consoled the Christian community of Thessalonica with these words:
“We do not want you to be unaware, brothers (and sisters), about those who have fallen asleep, so that you may not grieve like the rest, who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose, so too will God, through Jesus, bring with him those who have fallen asleep…. Thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore, console one another with these words.” (1 Thessalonians 4:13-14, 17-18).
