Stories about 'Abdu'l-Bahá

Greeting each child at a Bahá’í children’s meeting

Mahmud's Diary

San Francisco, CA

A Bahá’í children’s meeting was held in the afternoon at the home of Mrs. Goodall and Mrs. Cooper. When the Master saw the children, He remarked: ‘Praise be to God! What radiant children they are!’ He spoke briefly, encouraging and praising them for their courtesy and upbringing. Kissing them one by one, He greeted each child in short English sentences and each received from Him some flowers and sweets.
