“No se turbe vuestro Corozon: creeis en Dios, creed tambien en mi, En la casa de mi Padre muchas moradas hay; si asi no fuera, yo os lo hubiera dicho; voy, pues, a preparar lugar para vosotros. Y si me fuere y os preparare lugar, vendre otra vez, y os tomare a mi mismo, para que donde yo estoy, vosotros tambien esteis.Y sabeis a donde voy, y sabeis el camino.”- San Juan 14:1-4
