Stories about 'Abdu'l-Bahá

‘Abdu’l-Bahá blessed the marriage of Grace Robarts and Harlan Ober

In the evening I returned to a wedding, Grace Robarts’ and Harlan Ober’s, where the Master, for me, as well as for the bride and bridegroom, turned the water of life into wine.

Grace and Harlan stood together, transfigured; they seemed to be bathed in white light. Mr. Ives, standing opposite, married them. Back in the shadow sat the Master. There were times when I, sitting at a little distance from Him, felt His lightning glance on me. At the end of the service He blessed the marriage. After this He went upstairs, to the front room on the third floor.
