“O ye maid-servants of His Majesty, the Lord—daughters…”

O ye maid-servants of His Majesty, the Lord—daughters and sons of the Kingdom! 1
The meeting of the Lord’s Supper, which you held in the home of Mr. and Mrs. ….….. (was blessed) with the lights of the Beauty of the Merciful, which shone from the Kingdom of Abha, and Abdul-Baha was present in spirit and heart although absent in body. 676 That meeting was exceedingly bright, and as the rose-garden, emitted a pleasant fragrance.
Meetings organized with the utmost holiness and piety, wherein those who are present engage in the mention and thought of God, and wherein the verses of Oneness are chanted and the prayers of the Threshold of the Lord of Verses are offered and the exhortations and counsels of the Blessed Beauty recited, such meetings are illumined, spiritual, divine and heavenly. They are the means of training the world of humanity.
I am, night and day, engaged in remembering you, and happy with your thought, and ask the Lord of the Kingdom for confirmation, that He may make each one of you a sign of guidance and the means of educating and guiding other women and men.
The bounty and grace of God in this illumined cycle is like the ocean. Every instant it surges, reaching the apogee with its waves and inundating the shores of existence. Therefore, O ye maid-servants of the Merciful and servants of God, endeavor while this ocean is still surging and this cloud raining and pouring, to make the surface of the earth feel the reality, that it may grow the hyacinths, the flowers and fruits of concord, peace, love, faith, realities and significances.
