Convey my respectful greeting to ….…. and announce to her: “This period is a blessed period; endeavor that thou mayest live according to the requirements of this Glorious Age.”
Convey my greeting to ….…. and say: “The Heavenly Table is descended; become thou hungry in so far as thou canst and partake of that Food.”
