"... it is better to believe than not to believe, for, if you believe, and it is proven true, you will be happy that you have believed, because our
Holy Mother asked it. If you believe, and it should be proven false, you will receive all blessings as if it had been true, because you
believed it to be true."(Pope Urban VIII, 1623-44)
It helps many people to believe in life-after-death. If its true, then all well and good. If its not true, the very act of believing in it makes those
people's lives more bearable.
