Our Father-Mother Cares for Our Sons

On pages 82 and 83 of "Miscellaneous Writings" our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, says, "Immortal Mind is God, immortal good." She continues: "This Mind, then, is not subject to growth, change, or diminution, but is the divine intelligence, or Principle, of all real being; holding man forever in the rhythmic round of unfolding bliss, as a living witness to and perpetual idea of inexhaustible good." Truth operates eternally in spite of every argument of the carnal mind to the contrary, and the realization of this lifts us above the fears and tragedies of a so-called mortal existence. Mortal mind's claim to re-create man and so apparently take him out of the control and care of infinite Spirit, his true Father-Mother, and bring him into a mortal and dangerous universe, is the basic cause of all our fears regarding our dear ones.

When mothers have to bid farewell to their sons who go forth to war sustained by the thought that they are fighting for a righteous cause, it is well for us to see how we can best help in our thinking both mother and son, and to see how most effectively a mother's prayers can protect her child.
