As Catholics, why do we believe this? Is it doctrine? Do all of us believe it? Whenever someone passes away, many times I hear “Grandma and Grandpa are together again,” or “My husband is waiting for me in heaven,” or “We’ll meet again.” I find it puzzling that we claim belief in one doctrine but live according to another.
Regardless of doctrine, most Christians I know actually believe in heavenly reunions—is essence, death does NOT do us part. So why do we still say this in our wedding vows? What are your thoughts?
