The ‘resplendent light’ of Christ
The promise of Christmas is a promise for all of humanity, and for all time.
The angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them.... And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
– Luke 2:9, 10
The star that looked lovingly down on the manger of our Lord, lends its resplendent light to this hour: the light of Truth, to cheer, guide, and bless man as he reaches forth for the infant idea of divine perfection dawning upon human imperfection, – that calms man’s fears, bears his burdens, beckons him on to Truth and Love and the sweet immunity these bring from sin, sickness, and death.
– Mary Baker Eddy, “Miscellaneous Writings 1883-1896,” p. 320
I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.
– Matthew 28:20
