“96: O ye children of the the Kingdom:…”

O ye children of the the Kingdom:
Your letters with your photographs have been received. From the perusal of the letters the utmost heartfelt emotions were experienced and at the sight of the portraits a spiritual joy and gladness was felt. Praise be to God the letters were indicative of the turning of the faces toward the Kingdom and from those faces it was evident that the light of the love of God is manifest and resplendent upon the brows.
I pray to God that in this school on Sundays ye may acquire heavenly knowledge, ye may secure a training of merciful characteristics and that ye may advance from day to day so that each of you may become a peerless shrub in the Divine Rose-garden and may be adorned with full foliage, and fruits.
(From a Tablet to the children of the Bahá’í school, Urbana, Illinois, published in “The Magazine of The Children of the Kingdom” Vol. I, No. 2 (March, 1920), p. 2) [96]
