Letter of 5 April 1951

5 April 1951
To the Believers who were present on World Youth Day held at Heidelberg.
Dear Bahá’í Friends:
Your message of March 25th has been received by our beloved Guardian; and he was most happy to know that so many of the Bahá’ís were present on this occasion.
He urges you all to concentrate your time and energies on spreading the Cause, and not to become distracted by the extremely confused condition of the world and the acuteness of the problems facing humanity. 100
There is only one answer to these problems, and that is the Message of Bahá’u’lláh; and we, His followers, are the ones who alone can carry this Message to our fellow-men before it is too late.
You may be sure he will remember you all in his prayers in the Holy Shrines, and supplicate for the rapid expansion of the Cause in Germany and the consolidation of its administrative institutions….
[From the Guardian:]
May the Almighty bless, guide and sustain you always, remove every obstacle from your path, and enable you to promote, at all times, the vital interests of its nascent institutions,
Your true brother,
