EASTER MESSAGE, 1902
Beloved Brethren: – May this glad Easter morn find the members of this dear church having a pure peace, a fresh joy, a clear vision of heaven here, heaven within us, – and an awakened sense of the risen Christ. May long lines of light span the horizon of their hope and brighten their faith with a dawn that knows no twilight and no night. May those who discourse music today, sing as the angels heaven’s symphonies that come to earth.
May the dear Sunday School children always be gathering Easter lilies of love with happy hearts and ripening goodness. To-day may they find some sweet scents and beautiful blossoms in their Leader’s love, which she sends to them this glad morn in the flowers and the cross from Pleasant View, smiling upon them. (Eddy, Mary Baker, First Church of Christ, Scientist and Miscellany, p.155:16-31)
