Christian Science, the Comforter

In the days when Christ Jesus delivered his message to the multitudes who thronged his steps, numerous were the healings that took place, and great was the consolation he brought to suffering and sorrowful humanity through his understanding of divine law. To reveal that law was the mission of the Master; for it was given to him to know that through the application of it the world would be redeemed. And when Mrs. Eddy wrote in the Preface of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. xii), "In the spirit of Christ's charity,—as one who 'hopeth all things, endureth all things,' and is joyful to bear consolation to the sorrowing and healing to the sick,—she commits these pages to honest seekers for Truth," she was plainly telling mankind of the comforting power of Christian Science, which reveals the law of God and its application to all human need.

To the spiritually unenlightened thought, human existence is an inscrutable mystery, a period of longer or shorter duration during which trials are the lot of men and all have the burdens of sorrow and suffering in some degree to bear. But is human existence an enigma after all? Christian Science declares that it need not be; that it only remains enigmatical so long as divine Truth is unknown. And Christian Science proceeds to teach mankind the truths of being, thereby clearing away its doubts, its misgivings, its fears, thus bringing consolation and comfort ofttimes beyond the fondest hopes.
