ROLLING AWAY THE STONE

When early that first Easter morning Mary Magdalene went to the tomb, she peered into the sepulcher. The heavy stone had been rolled away, and her Master's body was not inside.

Writing of the significance of this event, Mary Baker Eddy asks (Miscellaneous Writings, p. 179), "What is it that seems a stone between us and the resurrection morning?" And she replies: "It is the belief of mind in matter. We can only come into the spiritual resurrection by quitting the old consciousness of Soul in sense." And she further explains, "We must lay aside material consciousness, and then we can perceive Truth, and say with Mary, 'Rabboni!'—Master!"
