St. John tells us, “Blessed is he that hath part in the first resurrection. In these the second death hath no power.” Rev. XX., 6.

The Catholic Answers

The first resurrection is the mystical resurrection from the death of sin. We rise with Christ in Baptism, and those who die still retaining the grace of their baptismal rebirth possess a permanent title to the glorious second and actual resurrection of the body at the last day. On such as these the second death will have no effect. The first death is the dissolution of soul and body. The second death is the eternal living death of hell.
