Mary Baker Eddy writes in "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany" (pp. 149, 150), "Remember, thou canst be brought into no condition, be it ever so severe, where Love has not been before thee and where its tender lesson is not awaiting thee." And in Science and Health (p. 55), "In the words of St. John: 'He shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever.' This Comforter I understand to be Divine Science."

A few years ago, after the passing of my youngest son, I found myself wretched and confused by a bitter, persistent sense of separation and loneliness. One day, while thinking of the Lord's Prayer, the words in our Leader's spiritual interpretation of it (ibid., p. 16), "Our Father-Mother God, all-harmonious," stood out as never before. I was thinking a great deal in terms of the family circle then, and I saw that a family dwells in happiness and security in the house of the father and mother. No matter in what part of the house the individual members are, whether they are visible to each other or able to converse, so long as they are all together in that home they are happy and contented. So in the case of the little boy and myself, "in him we live, and move, and have our being." And with a rush of gratitude I realized that both of us would "dwell in the house of the Lord for ever."
