Over 20,000 fearless champions sacrificed for God and The Báb. The Universal House of Justice calls these souls lionhearts. This year, we call our stories Lionhearts from the Time of the Báb.
"The months ahead will also be a time for calling to mind the lives of the Báb’s intrepid followers—heroines and heroes whose faith was expressed in matchless, sacrificial acts that will forever adorn the annals of the Cause. Their qualities of fearlessness, consecration, and detachment from all save God impress themselves upon everyone who learns of their ventures. How striking, too, is the young age at which so many of those lionhearts made their indelible mark on history. During the coming period, may their example give courage to the entire company of the faithful—not least to the youth, who are once more summoned to the vanguard of a movement aimed at nothing less than the transformation of the world.” (excerpt from The Universal House of Justice, Ridván 2018 Message)
In the Lionheart stories we will look at choices and selfless actions taken by these heroic souls. The Lionhearts gave a message of light in the darkness of prejudice and ignorance growing throughout Persia. They suffered and sacrificed for future generations, desiring with all their hearts to bring about the Age that The Báb promised: A peaceful era of good-will, and a better understanding of the spiritual mission of humankind on the earth.
The lionhearts did the acts of service that were necessary for those early days of the Faith. They were not blindly acting. They knew it would take generations of effort to bring about a new world. Now is our time to arise for the betterment of the world, and future generations.
