The Mourners, by Evelyn De Morgan

In this picture, despite the laments of the mourners, the deceased appear to have gone to an heavenly city.

There was mourning when Stephen died. We haev every right to lament the death of a fellow believer.

Yet though we are naturally sad when fellow Christians fall asleep, we have joy that they are present with Christ and we shall be with them again in the resurrection.
