“O thou whose breast is dilated with the Fragrances…”

O thou whose breast is dilated with the Fragrances of God!
I received thy letter which showed thine advance toward the Kingdom of God.
O maid-servant of God! Verily, the weakness of body and its strength do neither harm nor benefit; nay, 220 rather the spirit must be strong through the breath of the Holy Spirit, at this time, so that it may apprehend the consummate wisdom which is deposited in this great age. I beg of God that He may increase joy and fragrance in thy spirit, give thee power and strength, and that He may help thee at every moment in faith and assurance. Verily my Lord is powerful in all things! Trust thou in the grace of thy Master and ask that which thou wishest from His Name, the Clement, the Merciful.
