 “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God trust also in me.   In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you.  I am going to prepare a place for you.  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you may be where I am.  You know the way to the place where I am going.”

John 14: 1-4
