love one another, as I have loved you.

(Sublime summary)
The supremacy of Spirit was the foundation on which Jesus built.
His sublime summary points to the religion of Love.


4:5 Chapter 1: Prayer


(Efficacious petitions)
To keep the commandments of our Master and follow his example, is
our proper debt to him and the only worthy evidence of our

itself sufficient to express loyal and heartfelt gratitude, since
he has said: "If ye love me, keep my commandments."

Christ was not crucified - that doom 
Was Jesus' part; 
For Sharon's rose must bud and bloom 
In human heart. * 
*God was manifest in the Flesh- St.Paul

Enable us to know, -as in heaven, so on earth,- God is omnipotent, supreme.

A loyal ray 
To rouse the living, wake the dead, 
And point the Way - 

Our Father-Mother God, all-harmonious.

(Behest of the cross)
Material belief is slow to acknowledge what the spiritual fact
implies. The truth is the centre of all religion. It commands
sure entrance into the realm of Love. St. Paul wrote, "Let us lay
aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and
let us run with patience the race that is set before us;" that is,
let us put aside material self and sense, and seek the divine
Principle and Science of all healing.

And he that overcometh, and keepeth my

And I will give him the MORNING STAR. 
-CHRIST JESUS-

For God is infinite, all-power, all Life, Truth, Love, over all, and All.

(The robe of Science)
He that touches the hem of Christ's robe and masters his mortal
beliefs, animality, and hate, rejoices in the proof of healing, -
in a sweet and certain sense that God is Love.
