Whatever the significance of the obscure remarks on Christian Science by a preacher, as reported, it is but fair to reply that Christian Science is symbolized by light and not by darkness. Shakespeare wrote, "There is no darkness but ignorance." St. John wrote, "God is light, and in him is no darkness at all." Therefore, what sense is there in saying, "God's midnight hour," and "doctrine of night"? St. John also said that "the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not." Christian Science affirms that divine intelligence is reflected everywhere, available forever to dispel ignorance, despair, sin.

Looked at through the dark glasses of pessimism, the world may seem dark, but right thinking gives a vision of "new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness." Christian Science teaches that as we pray, "Thy kingdom come," we should confidently behold the brightness of its coming, the signs of the reign of divine Love, comforting, healing, uplifting.
