If you were to poll people on the street they would probably confess a willingness to spend lots of money to be more comfortable. We want to be comfortable, but there is the issue that we all face in this life: nothing lasts forever. We know that if we get something new that makes life a little easier it will not last. It will break. This is why the promise of the catechism is so radical that we can have a comfort in life and in death. How can that be? A comfort in death? Is this really possible to a comfort that is in this life and extends beyond this life?
