The eighth in a series of newsreels documenting the construction of the Bahá’í House of Worship for South America has been released and can be viewed online in Spanish, English and Portuguese, reports the Bahá’í World News Service. The title of the episode, “Connection with South America,” highlights the impact that the erection of the House of Worship is having across the continent.

The video describes the progress that has been made in the last few months, including the placement of marble panels in the interior of the central edifice, the near completion of the flat glass cladding on its exterior, and the removal of its temporary central tower, exposing its unique and beautiful interior, unobstructed. The video ends by capturing the placement of the Greatest Name at the House of Worship’s apex.

This sacred symbol was lifted into place in the early hours of 29 April, on the ninth day of Ridván. A letter from the Universal House of Justice dated 29 April about the progress of the construction of the House of Worship can be found here.
