"Thou shalt embrace a son"

From the July 15, 1972 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


Much is said and written today about control of the population explosion and limiting the numbers in families; but what about the people who do not have children at all and long for them? There is no vacuum of this, or of any, kind that the healing presence of the Christ cannot fill. Throughout the Bible there are instances of childless couples who had their deep desire for an enlarged sense of family fulfilled.
