224: YOUTH, JUNIOR (Do Great Deeds)

“He urges you to make up your minds to do great, great deeds for the Faith; the condition of the world is steadily growing worse, and your generation must provide the saints, heroes, martyrs and administrators of future years. With dedication and will power you can rise to great heights!”
“He appreciates very much the devoted and determined spirit with which you are facing the future and all the Bahá’í responsibility it will bring you increasingly. The part of youth is very great; you have the opportunity to really determine to exemplify in word and deed the Teachings of Bahá’u’lláh, and to show your generation that the New World Order He has brought is a tangible reality in the lives of His followers.”
