Description:

Ascension of Baha’u’llah: This commemorates the day when the founder and prophet of the Baha'i Faith died in 1892.

 

Reflection: “Abdu’l-Bahá explained to the Bahái’s that the physical body of the Prophet of God is like a cloud which covers the sun and which prevents its rays from reaching the earth. Because of their physical limitations, the Prophets of God must live by the rules of physical existence. For this reason, many people are tested. They will say, ‘What kind of Prophet is he? He sleeps and eats and walks the streets like everyone else.’ But when the cloud is removed, the rays of the sun reach the people directly, and the whole of creation is resuscitated by their lifegiving light.”
