    Jesus taught by the wayside, in humble homes. He 100 100:1spake of Truth and Love to artless listeners and dull disciples. His immortal words were articulated in a 3decaying language, and then left to the providence of God. Christian Science was to interpret them; and woman, “last at the cross,” was to awaken the dull senses, 6intoxicated with pleasure or pain, to the infinite meaning of those words.

    Past, present, future, will show the word and might of 9Truth — healing the sick and reclaiming the sinner —  so long as there remains a claim of error for Truth to deny or to destroy. Love’s labors are not lost. The 12five personal senses, that grasp neither the meaning nor the magnitude of self-abnegation, may lose sight thereof; but Science voices unselfish love, unfolds infinite good, 15leads on irresistible forces, and will finally show the fruits of Love. Human reason is inaccurate; and the scope of the senses is inadequate to grasp the word of Truth, 18and teach the eternal.

    Science speaks when the senses are silent, and then the evermore of Truth is triumphant. The spiritual mon21itor understood is coincidence of the divine with the human, the acme of Christian Science. Pure humanity, friendship, home, the interchange of love, bring to earth 24a foretaste of heaven. They unite terrestrial and celestial joys, and crown them with blessings infinite.

    The Christian Scientist loves man more because he 27loves God most. He understands this Principle, — Love. Who is sufficient for these things? Who remembers that patience, forgiveness, abiding faith, and affection, are 30the symptoms by which our Father indicates the different stages of man’s recovery from sin and his entrance into Science? Who knows how the feeble lips 101 101:1are made eloquent, how hearts are inspired, how healing becomes spontaneous, and how the divine Mind is 3understood and demonstrated? He alone knows these wonders who is departing from the thraldom of the senses and accepting spiritual truth, — that which blesses 6its adoption by the refinement of joy and the dismissal of sorrow.

    Christian Science and the senses are at war. It is a 9revolutionary struggle. We already have had two in this nation; and they began and ended in a contest for the true idea, for human liberty and rights. Now cometh 12a third struggle; for the freedom of health, holiness, and the attainment of heaven.
