In Heaven We’ll Meet Again

The Saints and Scripture on our Heavenly Reunion


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!

Life after death: what happens next
I bought this for my father who was struggling from the loss of his wife. It offers the lessons of expertise of the Saints but its language is similar to the Bible so not the easiest of reads.
