“There are many mansions in My Father’s house.”  Catholics ask: “How many?”

John 14:2  quotes an amazing statement from Jesus.  “There are many mansions in My Father’s house.”  Catholics ask:  “How many?”


Catholics think logically.  First, we find out what a “mansion” is.  Real estate experts calculate that a “mansion” has at least 8,000 square feet.

A respectable mansion is surrounded by two acres of beautiful pools, fountains, tennis courts, manicured lawns, and gardens.  Two acres is about 80,000 square feet.

That is a reasonable size for one of the “many mansions” in Heaven.


Logical Catholics look at the “square footage” available in Heaven.  The Heavenly City is a perfect cube.  It is 1,500 miles long, wide, and high!  That is the actual size of God’s Heavenly City measured by an Angel in Revelation 21:16!

The first level of The Heavenly City is 1,500 x 1,500 miles, or 2,250.000 square miles.  Multiply by 640 to find the acres on each level of Heaven.

There are, on each level of The Heavenly City, 1,440,000,000 acres.  (One billion, four hundred and forty thousand acres).  Divide by two to find an approximate number of “mansion lots”.  There are 720,000,000 (seven hundred and twenty million) “mansion lots” on every level of Heaven!

The “levels of Heaven” may be  a hundred feet apart.  That would give room for trees, orchards, and rainbows.  Birds could fly above every “mansion”.  There may be 79,200 levels.

We multiply 79,200 levels by 720,000,000 “mansion lots” per level.  Heaven has room for 57,024,000,000,000 “mansions”.  That’s fifty seven trillion and twenty four billion “mansions”!

That’s enough room for every unborn soul who would have lived and chosen to be Catholic to have a “mansion”, too!


Catholics encourage our beloved Protestant neighbors to “check those numbers” from The Bible!  They may see a compelling reason to be among “You are My friends if you obey My commands.” 

Only His obedient “friends” may live forever in one of the “many mansions in My Father’s House”.

The most worldly Protestants should be the first to obey The Church-Founding Decree of Jesus!

“And I say unto you thou art Peter and on this rock I build My Church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. I give you the keys to The Kingdom of Heaven.”

~On the other hand. . .~

Souls lost to willful disobedience spend eternity watching huge TV screens in the stinking, burning pits of Hell.  The only TV show they can watch shows their Obedient Catholic neighbors!  The souls of the willfully disobedient must forever watch obedient Catholics who are blessed to live in endless joy in their “Mansions” in The Heavenly City.

The willfully disobedient souls eternally watch that on TV.  While they watch, demons endlessly poke at them with hot pitchforks.

The tormenting demons cackle at them!   “See where you could be if you had chosen to be one of Jesus’ obedient ‘friends’?”
