"THERE SHALL BE NO MORE ... SORROW"

Out of her deep understanding of God, divine Love, Mary Baker Eddy wrote these words in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 302): "It is impossible that man should lose aught that is real, when God is all and eternally his."

Some years ago the writer found herself faced with a great sense of grief and loss following the passing on of a loved one. Many kind individuals told her that God would heal her sorrow and fill the seeming emptiness. Yet she felt that although the intent of these individuals was loving and sincere, they must never have experienced a similar loss or they would know that nothing can take the place of the actual presence of the loved one. Then, gradually, through earnest prayer and meditation, persistent study of the Bible and our Leader's writings, and a sincere effort to live what she was learning, the great wonder of the presence of divine Love began to dawn on her consciousness. As this presence became more and more tangible to her, all sense of sorrow and loss was wiped away and her life was filled with the peace, joy, and satisfaction of Love's grace.
