The Mary Baker Eddy Library for the Betterment of HumanityTM

In her true light...

A look at the unpublished writings of Mary Baker Eddy

In September 2002, The Mary Baker Eddy Library for the Betterment of Humanity will open its doors. For the rest of this year, the Sentinel will bring readers selections from the Library's previously unpublished collection of materials.

The following is an excerpt from a letter Mary Baker Eddy wrote in 1906 in response to an inquiry from Minnie Hall Perry, regarding Perry's concern that a picture from another denomination—Roman Catholic in this case—hung in the Denver Christian Science Reading Room.

"Now dear one, trust in God, commit your way to Him. I love the Catholics and the Protestants insomuch as they love God and I love the M.D.s in just this way. Let us all love one another. God bless you and comfort you."

(This excerpt uses modern punctuation and spelling, with the ease of the reader in mind. The complete letter will be available when the Library is open.)
