In the early hours of Saturday, 27 November, attendees of the centenary gathering assembled in the courtyard of the Haifa Pilgrim House in a solemn and reverent atmosphere to mark the ascension of Abdu’l-Baha.

The program, held just steps away from the Shrine of the Bab where Abdu’l-Baha’s earthly remains were interred upon his passing, stimulated deep reflection among participants on Abdu’l-Baha’s exemplary life of service to humanity.

tribute written by the Universal House of Justice for the occasion was read by one of its members. The tribute states, in part: “No clearer demonstration could be imagined of how he embodied the forces of unity than the sight of his funeral, at which a vast crowd of mourners from every creed in this land came together to grieve their common loss.”

The tribute continues: “The universality of his love produced a community that, even at that time, could justly claim to be a cross-section of society. His love revived, nurtured, inspired; it banished estrangement and welcomed all to the banquet table of the Lord.” Visit news.bahai.org to view a gallery of images of the evening’s program.
