Letter of 18 December 1949

18 December 1949
Bahá’í Youth Committee of Germany and Austria
Dear Bahá’í Friends:
Your letter of November 12 has been received by our Guardian, and he has instructed me to answer it on his behalf.
He will certainly pray for the success of your very important branch of the Bahá’í work in Germany and Austria.
We, as students of religion and history, cannot but expect that when God’s Greatest Revelation, (up until this time,) reaches the world, it will cause terrific repercussions in the lives of men. This is what we are witnessing all about us today, and although we, and others, suffer from the state of society, we cannot but derive inspiration from the fact that this very chaos is a testimony to the strength and potency of the Divine Remedy brought by Bahá’u’lláh….
[From the Guardian:]
May the Almighty Whose Cause you are serving in such a vital sphere of Bahá’í activity, guide, bless and sustain you, remove the formidable obstacles that stand in your path, and enable you to win great and memorable victories for its institutions,
Your true and grateful brother,
