A moving story of Abdu'l-Baha's journey to Montréal one hundred years ago. It happened between 30th August and 9th September 1912.
Abdu'l-Baha was the son of the founder of the Baha'i Faith, Baha'u'llah who was exiled from His native land in Iran to Iraq and then to Palestine. He addressed a series of letters to the rulers of His day that are among the most remarkable documents in religious history. They proclaimed the coming unification of humanity and the emergence of a world civilization.
And that was for this reason that Abdu'l-Baha took a two year journey to Europe and North America as soon as He was freed from prison in 1908 following the young Turk's revolution. There He proclaimed Bahá'u'lláh's message of unity and social justice to church congregations, peace societies, the members of trade unions, university faculties, journalists, government officials, and many public audiences.He was 68 when start his travels.
