the standard of the oneness of humanity, to promulgate the                     
Most Great Peace, to become thereby most glorious and                          
praiseworthy among all the nations of the world.  O God! This

Thy mercy.  Make it precious and near to Thee through Thy                      
bounty and bestowal.
