Dona Nobis Pacem: lights of unity


My peace globe for blogblast4peace 4 November 2012

"The first candle is unity in the political realm, the early glimmerings of which can now be discerned. 

The second candle is unity of thought in world undertakings, the consummation of which will ere long be witnessed. 

The third candle is unity in freedom which will surely come to pass. 

The fourth candle is unity in religion which is the corner-stone of the foundation itself, and which, by the power of God, will be revealed in all its splendour. 

The fifth candle is the unity of nations -- a unity which in this century will be securely established, causing all the peoples of the world to regard themselves as citizens of one common fatherland. 

The sixth candle is unity of races, making of all that dwell on earth peoples and kindreds of one race. 

The seventh candle is unity of language, i.e., the choice of a universal tongue in which all peoples will be instructed and converse. 

Each and every one of these will inevitably come to pass, inasmuch as the power of the Kingdom of God will aid and assist in their realization."

 "The Seven Candles of Unity" from the Bahá'i Writings of 'Abdul-Bahá

  1. Debi - I found your blog in looking for beaders in Haifa. I have been reading it and it is a delightful blog. I will be in Haifa in a few weeks and wonder if I can email you some questions? My email is: susanlk310@yahoo.com - would you write to me so that I can write back instead of using the comment box? Thank you so much, Yours, Susan
