The Rebbe

From Proceeding Together — Volume 1: Talks by the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson after the Passing of the Previous Rebbe, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn on Yud Shvat 5710 [1950]

Accordingly, through strengthening our bond [with the Rebbe] by studying his Torah teachings and giving practical application to his directives (both his public directives, and also -- especially -- those given face-to-face [to individuals] at yechidus), we will immediately be granted the merit (since we are at "the footsteps of Mashiach") of seeing the Rebbe with fleshly eyes, and the Rebbe will lead us to the Redemption.
