The hope of the resurrection was what inspired the seven sons and their mother to endure the sufferings recounted in 2 Maccabees 7.
Jesus, in the Gospel reading from Luke 20, affirmed that this doctrine of the resurrection is true.
The truth of the resurrection means that this life does have meaning. God made us to know Him, to love Him and to serve Him in this world, and to be happy with Him in the next.
Eye has not seen nor ear heard, nor has it entered into the heart of man, what things God has prepared for those who love him. (I Corinthians 2:9)
