Let not your heart be troubled; ye believe in God, believe also in me.  In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told*you.  I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.  St. John 14:1-3
