Call to the Nations
Extracts from the writings of Shoghi Effendi
"Well is it with him who fixeth his gaze upon the Order of Bahá'u'lláh." ~ The Báb
"It is towards this goal - the goal of a new World Order, Divine in origin, all-embracing in scope, equitable in principle, challenging in its features - that a harassed humanity must strive.” ~ Shoghi Effendi.
Shoghi Effendi, Guardian of the Bahá'í Faith, in exercising his function of interpreting the Bahá'í Revelation, dwelt at great length and with considerable emphasis on the world order enshrined within that Revelation. Early in his ministry, which initiated the Formative Age of the Faith, he alluded to "those priceless elements of that Divine Civilization, the establishment of which is the primary mission of the Bahá'í Faith.", and over the years he indited a series of letters, generally referred to as his World Order letters, unfolding this theme.
