When the well known halachic authority, Rabbi Gavriel Zinner, wrote his work on the Three Weeks, called Nit'ei Gavriel, he showed a copy to the Rebbe and asked for his blessing on it. The Rebbe blessed him and noted that the most important Halachah of the Three Weeks and the Nine Days is the obligation to not only nullify (make Batel) this mourning period, but to actually convert these days into days of joy and celebration - through bringing Moshiach to rebuild the Third Temple. (Likutei Sichot vol. 33, p. 297)
