I Appeal to You
... through Bertha Dudde -13.10.1951

Faith without love is dead....It is essential to live up to the commandment of love in order toattain profound faith. Proof is not necessary to believe, rather, you have to become convinced of something that cannot be proven so that you canwholeheartedly support it, so that you can endorse what you now believein.
