"YOUTH THAT NEVER GROWS OLD"

"To preserve a long course of years still and uniform, amid the uniform darkness of storm and cloud and tempest, requires strength from above,—deep draughts from the fount of divine Love. Truly may it be said: There is an old age of the heart, and a youth that never grows old; a Love that is a boy, and a Psyche who is ever a girl. The fleeting freshness of youth, however, is not the evergreen of Soul; the coloring glory of perpetual bloom; the spiritual glow and grandeur of a consecrated life wherein dwelleth peace, sacred and sincere in trial or in triumph." In this passage from the Preface to her "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. ix), Mary Baker Eddy sets forth an ideal far beyond any human concept of beauty and grace.

Christian Science reveals that Life does not include either birth or death, nor is it divided into intervals known as babyhood, childhood, youth, maturity, old age.
