ANGELS AT THE TOMB
How beautiful must have been the vision that appeared on the resurrection morn to those who came to the tomb seeking the body of Christ Jesus! What comfort it must have been to their suffering hearts to hear the glorious message (Matt. 28:6), "He is not here: for he is risen"!
From time to time, in hours of grief and despair, sorrowing mortals come to the tomb of materiality, seeking consolation for lost hopes and joys. They may be longing for the touch of a hand that is gone, or perhaps they are mourning for a love that has vanished. They may be seeking better health, or they may be hoping to regain a treasure that seems irrevocably lost. Whatever the tomb may represent, if they turn humbly to divine Love, they will find God's angels waiting to comfort them.
Such, indeed, was the experience of Mary Baker Eddy, who writes in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 299): "My angels are exalted thoughts, appearing at the door of some sepulchre, in which human belief has buried its fondest earthly hopes. With white fingers they point upward to a new and glorified trust, to higher ideals of life and its joys."
