Words of Gratitude

Philadelphia, Pa.

Dear Sentinel:—I feel that I must send a few words of greeting and grateful thanks to God and our beloved Leader and Teacher, for the Christian Science Sentinel with its new dress and helpful motto.

Our beloved Mother is ever on the watchtower sending her loving, inspiring words to us her children. Through her pure thought God speaks. When the Truth first appeared to conscious mortal, the Virgin Mary, consecrated to the service of God, in the temple from her birth, was the purest type, in that age, to bring forth the child Jesus. So our Mother, when she brought forth the impersonal Truth, must have been in the sight of God the purest and best. We are accused of worshiping her personality. We who are striving to follow in the way she has pointed out for us, love her for her courage, her life of self-abnegation, her constant sacrifice, and untiring devotion to the Cause of God. We love her for the grand work she has done, and is doing. Thousands of grateful hearts throughout our land and elsewhere are blessing her for their freedom from suffering and form the slavery of the senses that bound them. She is, after many years of unceasing toil, beginning to reap what she has so long and so patiently been sowing, and, thanks to God, the crown of rejoicing is hers.
