1 Thes 4:13 And we will not have you ignorant, brethren, concerning them that are asleep, that you be not sorrowful, even as others who have no hope.

I will go up to the foot of the Cross; I will press my arms tightly around the cold body, the corpse of Christ, with the fire of my love…..I will unail it, with my reparation and mortifications….I will wrap it in the new winding-sheet of my clean life, and I will bury it in the clean rock of my breast, where no one can tear it away from me, and there, Lord, take your rest! Were the whole world to abandon you…serviam! I will serve you Lord.
— St. Josemaria Escriva

And if Christ be not risen again, your faith is vain, for you are yet in your sins.
Then they also that are fallen asleep in Christ, are perished.
If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.
But now Christ is risen from the dead, the firstfruits of them that sleep :
For by a man came death, and by a man the resurrection of the dead.
And as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all shall be made alive.
But every one in his own order: the firstfruits Christ, then they that are of Christ, who have believed in his coming.
Afterwards the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God and the Father, when he shall have brought to nought all principality, and power, and virtue.
1 Cor 15
