65: All praise be unto the Court of Holiness, ...
All praise be unto the Court of Holiness, that God has drawn certain blessed souls, entities
delicate and pure, unto a realm where they have no
desire save the good-pleasure of the Beloved;
where, in the pathway of the Ancient Beauty and
their devotion to `Abdu'l-Bahá, they yearn for
naught and have no other aim but to offer themselves
up, to serve, to guide humankind, and to
wander, homeless and portionless, over the earth.
Such promptings derive from the blessings and
confirmations of the Abhá Kingdom. Such
impulses come when a soul is cleaving fast to the
eternal world.... As to your not being present in
the Holy Land on the occasion of the anniversary of
His Passing, nor able to take part with these
bereaved ones in our mourning for the setting of the
Sun of the Covenant: be assured that in that dread
hour, that calamitous time, the souls of the people of
Bahá were, one and all, circumambulating His
resplendent resting-place, and the lamentation and
wailing of this faithful band were continually rising
up to the heavenly Throne. And that immaculate
Spirit must have gazed down upon them from the
realms on high, and bestowed upon them all His
grace, and grieved over the grieving of them all, and
consoled and soothed them all, and supplicated,
even as He now supplicates, His Supreme Companion
to grant unto every one of them fervour and
joy, and ardour and bliss, and detachment from the
world, and steadfast faith.
It is our hope that we all shall be blessed and
confirmed in whatever befits this day.
