Spiritual Relationship

In the evening of September 28th, 'Abdu'l-Baha was with a number of

assembled guests.

He said all of you here are sisters. Bodily relationships may pass; even

two sisters may be inimical to each other, but the spiritual relationship

is eternal, and brings about mutual love and service.

Be always kind to everyone and a refuge for those who are without shelter.

Be daughters to those who are older than you.

Be sisters to those who are of your own age.

Be mothers to those who are younger than yourselves.

Be nurses to the sick, treasurers for the poor, and supply heavenly food

to the hungry.

A Persian doctor from Qazvin said this was a great work of God that the

East and the West had become so united, and we must always thank God that

the Baha'i cause had produced such great harmony and union between us. The

result of this visit of 'Abdu'l-Baha to the West would be very great.
