English translation

Es ist euch gut, daß ich hingehe; denn so ich nicht hingehe, kömmt der Tröster nicht zu euch. So ich aber gehe, will ich ihn zu euch senden. (John 16:7)
It is good for you that I leave; for if I did not go, the Comforter would not come to you. Since I go, however, I will send Him to you.
