What ever happened to Lazarus?

Albert Camus related a story that he lived in
terror after because he knew what was coming.

legend has it that Lazarus found his way, along with his sisters, from palestine to marsielles where he became bishop. but some believe the legend confuses the original with Lazerus the bishop of Aix, consecrated at marsielles in the 5th century AD.

After 2,000 years of Christianity, what is
the Christian attitude toward death?

I've learned from several religions, that there will be a certain amount of pain regarding lossed ones, understandibly, but...we were taught to morn obsessively is selfish...that death is not supposed to be a sad event, but more so a welcomed and festive event, or should be, as that person crosses over to the other side...and then, we should rejoice for them, but honestly, I don't do very well I suppose when I loose a loved one?...

The only people who know are on the other side...so, we'll just have to wait and see...cuz the Bible teaches us, that those who have crossed over cannot contact us, nor can we contact them?  

and so, John, I try hard to remember that, when a close one passes on....but sometimes, I'm very selfish, and miss them...and grieve for my loss...????

What can I say, except...oyyyyy vaaaaa

as far as Lazarus is concerned....I've wondered that to...but, I find it difficult to consume that after his reserrection, he would have a difficult time...????  But that's just me?
