Re: Chicago Tribune Article

In case these ones should seize upon my abbreviation of the above quote as a pretext for opposition to it, I will here provide it in it’s entirety. The application of it is still appropriate and in direct fulfillment of it nonetheless.

“How great, how very great is the Cause; how very fierce the onslaught of all the peoples and kindred of the earth! Ere long shall the clamor of the multitude throughout Africa, throughout America,the cry of the European and of the Turk, the groaning of India and China, be heard from afar and near. One and all they shall arise with all their power to resist His Cause. Then shall the Knights of the Lord, assisted by grace from on high, strengthened by faith, aided by the power of understanding and reinforced by the legions of the Covenant, arise and make manifest the truth of the verse:`Behold the confusion that hath befallen the tribes of the defeated!’ “

`Abdu’l-Baha, son of and immediate successor to Baha’u’llah, founder of the Baha’i Faith quoted by Shoghi Effendi in “The World Order of Baha’u’llah” pg. 17.
