About this item

Are loved ones reunited in Heaven?
The saints say “Absolutely!”

In wise and consoling letters written to a mother sorrowing over the death of her child, Fr. François René Blot, S.J., here summons the Church’s greatest saints who testify with one voice that death’s wound, though grievous, separates us but for a short while from those who die before us.

Acknowledging that profound sorrow at the death of loved ones is appropriate (after all, even Jesus wept for the death of his friend Lazarus), Fr. Blot nonetheless gives us reason to be joyful even in the midst of our sorrow: in heaven our loves and friendships will finally be free of the many hindrances — small and large — that keep them from being perfect in this life.

Moreover, the saints say, in heaven we will love and know the love of countless souls we never met on earth, our Guardian Angel, and all the choirs of angels! Soon after it was written, a Catholic Cardinal called this book “a pearl set in the fine gold of the doctrine of the Fathers” and a newspaper declared that it “deserves a distinguished place in all Christian libraries and should be on the table of every pious family that faithfully preserves the memory of its deceased members.”

Let the saints’ testimony in these beautiful pages assuage your grief and renew your hope! Let them increase your gratitude for the sacrifice of Christ whose death on the Cross opened heaven for us, and made these heavenly reunions possible!

Hope against despair
When one has deep faith, one knows that we will meet the people we have lost here on earth. But still, the loss can hurt the heart and spirit to where doubts about any meeting will loom. This book offers a release from those doubts and engenders hope that even though we have lost this person here on earth, they are never lost, just hidden from us temporarily. This book is a little gem to help us understand heaven and that we have not forgotten or been forgotten by the person who had to leave us.

Reuniting with loved ones in heaven
Acknowledging the pain in the loss of a loved one, the writings in this book, gleaned from Scripture, Church Fathers, Church teachings, and saints offer much hope and joy in contemplating what is promised to us when we are reunited with those who have gone before us. Readers are encouraged to not mourn with excess, but rather to aid them with our prayers, supplications, alms and sacrifices, which provides consolation to their souls. Readers are encouraged to be grateful for the sacrifice of Christ, who through his death on the Cross opened heaven for us, making heavenly reunions possible. The book is good reading for anyone, but can be a source of consolation to those who grieve.

Insightful and truly inspirational!
A must read for those of us with family and friends who have gone before us - which is the majority. Was never quite clear as to what to think or do for our departed loved ones, but now I do! What a blessing and consolation this book is for all who are trying to reach holiness.
