1. LETTER TO LOUHELEN JUNIOR YOUTH SESSION OF JULY 1944
25 August 1944
To the Bahá'ís who were present at the Junior Youth Session of Louhelen Summer School, July 1944
Dear Bahá'í Friends:
Your loving message, dated July 23rd, has been received and the Guardian has instructed me to answer you on his behalf.
He hopes that you will develop into Bahá'ís in character as well as in belief. The whole purpose of Bahá'u'lláh is that we should become a new kind of people, people who are upright, kind, intelligent, truthful, and honest and who live according to His great laws laid down for this new epoch in man's development. To call ourselves Bahá'ís is not enough, our inmost being must become ennobled and enlightened through living a Bahá'í life.
He will pray for you, each and every one, that you may be of great help to the world in the days to come.
With Bahá'í love,
May the Almighty bless your efforts, guide your steps, and enable you to further the interests, and consolidate the foundations, of this noble institution which has already rendered such notable services to our beloved and glorious Faith,
Your true brother
