Letter of 12 December 1954

12 December 1954
The Bahá’ís of Vienna.
Dear Bahá’í Friends:
Your letter of November 26th was received by the beloved Guardian, and he has instructed me to answer you on his behalf.
He is very happy to see the spirit of love and unity animating you, because without this, no work can go forward in the Cause of God. Personal differences of opinion, of character etc. must melt away in the love of the friends for Bahá’u’lláh, and their desire to serve His Cause.
He hopes that in the near future the Vienna Community will have its Hazíratu’l-Quds, to which he attaches the greatest 116 importance, as it will be the visible sign of the firm foundation on which that Community stands.
He will pray for you all, and for the rapid spread of the Faith through your efforts….
[From the Guardian:]
May the Almighty bless your meritorious efforts, reward you abundantly for your valued and constant services, and enable you to achieve great and memorable victories in the days to come,
Your true brother,
