The truth of the body is as essential to man’s harmony as the truth of the Soul, but the letter regarding both is not sufficient for either.  The letter of Truth is useful only that thereby the student may gain the spirit thereof; the letter alone killeth, but the spirit maketh alive; we work cheerfully for what we love; eagerly we pursue the object of affection, and how certainly we accomplish that whereunto we devote our lives, and give our energies.  The apathy, the lack of Love and Christian vigor, comes of seeking only the letter of Truth and stopping there, because it costs so much more to gain the spirit thereof.  Mary Baker Eddy

The price of Truth is hourly devotion, cheerful sacrifice, toil, and irrepressible conflict. Are you willing to work for your own self-advancement, and for the good of others, or do you think a few tireless laborers must or can do your work for you, and then you receive from a just God the wages you have not earned, and which is given to him who hath labored, and accordingly as he has labored?   Mary Baker Eddy

MARK 14:23 – 2

And he took the cup, and when he had given thanks, etc.

                 Could I only give you a new and vivid sense of the faith and love, the greatness and truth of which they tell, you would receive an exhilaration and conscious nourishment that no material element can supply.  Then would you understand what our communion service is designed to be, and what it is to commemorate Jesus in spirit and in truth.

                The word sacrament comes from the Latin sacramentum, which means the oath whereby the Roman soldier bound himself in allegiance to his general, and this was no ritual service.
