Pope Francis has reminded the Catholic faithful that death is not something to be feared since it is an encounter with Jesus.
In his homily at his official residence at Casa Santa Marta on Friday, the religious leader said that people do not always understand what life in heaven would actually be.
“There we begin to be unsure in our response. We don’t know well how to explain what heaven is. And some think: ‘But won’t it be boring there for all eternity?’ No! That is not heaven. We are on the path toward an encounter: the final meeting with Jesus. Heaven is the encounter with Jesus,” the pope said.
