A Christmas story: Love's ever-presence

Can Christian Science heal someone who feels separated from joy and love at Christmastime? It can, because of the spiritual view it gives of Christmas. In The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, Mrs. Eddy speaks of Christmas as "the birth of Truth, the dawn of divine Love breaking upon the gloom of matter and evil with the glory of infinite being." Miscellany, p. 262.

A young woman experienced something of this dawning of divine Love one year. Just before Christmas Eve she was abruptly told by a friend of hers that she was no longer invited to spend Christmas with the friend's family, as plans had changed at the last minute. The young woman was quite upset; it was too late in the day to make other plans, and it seemed as if she would have to spend Christmas Eve alone.
