Jesus comforts His disciples: “Do not let your heart be troubled. You believe in God, believe also in me. My Father’s House has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there 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 e that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.” John 14:1-4.
