Gethsemane

"Gethsemane. Patient woe; the human yielding to the divine; love meeting no response, but still remaining love" (Science and Health, p. 586).

Christian Scientists know the depth of meaning contained in this definition. How often, alone with their own suffering or by the bedside of loved ones, have the Scientists watched in "patient woe" until the night—that ominous symbol of death and doom—was lifted by the dawn and lost in the day. When working faithfully and with understanding; when denying the claims of personal sense and declaring the allness of God, and when holding steadfastly to Truth and Love, they have been conscious of "the human yielding to the divine."
