“O thou maid-servant of God!…”

O thou maid-servant of God!
Thy message, through the maid-servant of God ….…. was received. Happy is thy state that thou art seeking the Truth and endeavoring to attain eternal life. This is a lofty aim, but it requireth the heavenly confirmation and assistance.
I pray that this assistance may be vouchsafed unto 484 thee and this bounty environ thee, that thou hearest the call of the Kingdom and beholdest the greatest signs.
Reflect upon this: What a bounty and what a favor it is that the sages of the world and the wise among mankind are incompetent of comprehension, yet the little children of the Kingdom have attained the Truth, dwell and abide under the shadow of the Tree of Life and are assisted by the everlasting and eternal gift!
