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A look at the unpublished writings of Mary Baker Eddy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 For the rest of this year, the Sentinel will bring readers selections from the Library's previously unpublished collection of materials.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 excerpt is from a letter Mary Baker Eddy wrote in 1887 to Reuben Whitaker. He and his wife, Hattie, studied spiritual healing with Mrs. Eddy in the following year. At the time the letter was written, they were Christian Science practitioners in Oskaloosa, Iowa, but soon settled in Los Angeles, California, where they practiced Christian healing for several decades.

"I rejoice in your enlarged vision. This mystery of Godliness is not readily discerned. I have found from experience that this great point, that God is too pure to behold iniquity, is the highest view to be won of the everlasting Father and Prince of peace.
