“This day the Count made a covenant with the Lord. The Brethren all promised, one by one, that they would be the Saviour’s true followers. Self-will, self-love, disobedience—they bade these farewell. They would seek to be poor in spirit; no one was to seek his own profit before that of others; everyone would give himself to be taught by the Holy Spirit. By the mighty working of God’s grace all were not only convinced, but, as it were, carried along and mastered.”
