“O thou maid-servant of God!…”

O thou maid-servant of God!
Glad-tidings unto thee because of my address and answer to thee! God hath purified thee from iniquities 267 when He hath drowned thee in the sea of His mercy and made thee drink the cup of faith and the pure wine of knowledge. Well done! Well done! because thou hast desired the evanescence of thy will for the will of God, sought the augmentation of the love of God, the enlargement of the knowledge of God and straightforwardness in the path of God. I ask God to assist thee under all conditions and to enable thee to attain the utmost of hopes.
