Stories about 'Abdu'l-Bahá

An example of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá’s healing power

Mr. _____ a stranger to me, spoke of his great interest in hearing ‘Abdu’l-Bahá. I asked him if he would not like to meet Him, and he said “Yes,” but seeing his motor at the door he thought it impossible, but I said I will explain that you cannot stay, and he followed me into the dining room where ‘Abdu’l-Bahá was sitting. When ‘Abdu’l-Bahá found he could not sit down, He rose, said first a few wonderful words to him of which he alone could have understood the import, and taking from the fruit bowl a pear, He presented it to him. I saying, “That, you must eat yourself.” What He said was something like this — “You must not be depressed for a great light will come to you.”
