To move past sorrow, let God light the way

From the March 25, 2019 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


Two words in Christ Jesus’ statement, “Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted,” ( Matthew 5:4 ) confused me: blessed and comforted. When someone is in the throes of mourning, especially when a loved one has just passed on, how can they feel blessed? How can the individual who is left behind be comforted? These are questions I’ve grappled with, and I’ve found some answers through studying Christian Science.
