“O thou who art attracted to the Kingdom of God!…”

O thou who art attracted to the Kingdom of God!
Thou wert an extinguished candle; now—praise be to God! —thou art ignited; silent wert thou, but how thou hast become a speaker, a seer, a hearer, living and endowed with eternal life.!
Today, any soul who looseneth his tongue in the delivery of Truth and is engaged in the diffusion of the fragrances of God, he shall undoubtedly be assisted and confirmed by the Holy Spirit and can resist the attacks of all the people of the world, [for the] power of the Realm of Might shall prevail. That is why thou seest that, although the disciples of Christ were physically weak and apparently vanquished by the persecution of every king, yet in the end were victorious over all and brought them under their protection.
