Professional photographer Glenn Franco Simmons illustrated an excerpt about the Baha'i Covenant with a photo.

Baptized, Born Again

Today the pulsating power in the arteries of the body of the world is the spirit of the Covenant ~ the spirit which is the cause of life. Whosoever is vivified with this spirit, the freshness and beauty of life become manifest in him, he is baptized with the Holy Spirit, he is born again, is freed from oppression and tyranny, from heedlessness and harshness which deaden the spirit, and attains to everlasting life. Praise thou God that thou art firm in the Covenant and the Testament and art turning thy face to the Luminary of the world, His Highness Bahá'u'lláh.
~ ‘Abdu’l-Bahá
