Michael and Gabriel

[Written Especially for Young People]

In the Christian Science textbook. "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mary Baker Eddy describes two angels. These angels are Michael and Gabriel; and our Leader says of Michael (pp. 566, 567), "He leads the hosts of heaven against the power of sin, Satan, and fights the holy wars." And of Gabriel she says (p. 567): "The Gabriel of His presence has no contests. To infinite, ever-present Love, all is Love, and there is no error, no sin, sickness, nor death."

The whole of the passage which deals with these two angels should be studied closely if one would get the full benefit of its meaning, but the above quotations are remarkable in showing us the essential difference between Michael and Gabriel.
