“O thou dear maid-servant of God!…”

O thou dear maid-servant of God!
Mr. … hath greatly praised thee that—praise be to God! —thou art like unto a melodious nightingale, singing and warbling in the rose-garden of the love of God, and art uttering of the mystery of the Kingdom; 522 that thy house and dwelling is a meeting-place of the spiritual ones and thy nest and abode is a shelter for the birds of heaven. Nothing is better than that man should become a manifestor of the powers of God and the cause of illuminating the creatures.
