Stories about 'Abdu'l-Bahá

Recalling days in California: a “great commotion was set up in the souls”

Some of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá’s comments to the friends were these:

We went to California and a great commotion was set up in the souls. A new spirit was breathed into people. In universities, churches and gatherings people were stirred and the blessed Cause was proclaimed. Decisive proofs were advanced and the teachings of the Blessed Beauty were explained. No one took exception; rather, all offered praise and glory, even the clergymen.
