In John we read, "The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre." The writer of this testimony came to the sepulcher of human faith and love, where she had thought every hope of happiness lay buried. For several months prior to finding Christian Science I had turned to my Bible for some word of comfort and help, and finally that wonderful passage from Psalms, "Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore," came as the still, small voice, singing its message of peace amidst the shadows of fear and confusion, bringing courage and patience. So I came, while yet to sense testimony conditions were most distressing, into the consciousness of God as infinite, ever present good.

It was at the Christian Science reading room that the star of Bethlehem, the Christ, Truth, dawned for me. I entered the room weary and heavy-laden, without a know-able God, or hope in the world; I left it after two hours' reading of the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, with a clearer realization of God, whom our Master revealed to a sin-filled world,—God, good, one who knows no evil; therefore, sends no evil. Christian Science rolls away the stone of mortal material belief from human hope and love, gives to mankind a knowledge of the true and only God, explains the words, works, and life of Christ Jesus, and enables us to love to obey his commands because we understand them.
