Dear Co-worker: Messages from Shoghi Effendi to the Benelux countries , pp94-5
Jeanne Boekhoudt, 25 December 1949
Dear Bahà’i Sister:
Your letter of November 3 was received and our beloved Guardian has instructed me to answer you on his behalf.
As he is particularly busy at this time in connection with the work going on at the Shrine I will make this just a short letter.
He does not feel that you should try to do anything special about this capacity you feel to help people when they are ill. This does not mean you should not use it when the occasion arises, such as it did recently. But he means you should not become a “healer” such as the Christian Scientists have, and we Bahà’is do not have.
As your niece seems quite happy in her new life there is nothing you can do to open her eyes but pray for her. He too will pray for her.
With warmest greetings, R. Rabbání
Assuring you of my loving prayers for your success in the service of our beloved Faith, and for the realization of every hope you cherish for its promotion. Your true brother; Shoghi
