Golden Text: “Blessed art thou, O Lord:…Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.” (Ps 119:12,18) and from the Responsive Reading: “Thus saith God the Lord, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein: I the Lord have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles; To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house….And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them. …Hear, ye deaf; and look, ye blind, that ye may see.” (Isa 42:5-7, 16, 18)
From Section 2: “Blessed art thou, O Lord:…Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.” (Ps 119:12,18) And from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy: “Mortals must look beyond fading, finite forms, if they would gain the true sense of things. Where shall the gaze rest but in the unsearchable realm of Mind? …As mortals gain more correct views of God and man, multitudinous objects of creation, which before were invisible, will become visible. …Spirit and its formations are the only realities of being.” (SH 264:7-10, 13-15, 20)
From Section 3: “Jesus beheld in Science the perfect man, who appeared to him where sinning mortal man appears to mortals. In this perfect man the Saviour saw God’s own likeness, and this correct view of man healed the sick.” (SH 476:32-4) and from Section 5: “Reality is spiritual, harmonious, immutable, immortal, divine, eternal.” (SH 335:27-28)
