Writings on Passover By: Mary Baker Eddy

“To-day you have come to a sumptuous feast, to one that for many years has been awaiting you. The guests are distinguished above human title and this feast is a Passover. To sit at this table of their Lord and partake of what divine Love hath prepared for them, Christian Scientists start forward with true ambition” (Message to The Mother Church, 1900 p.15).

“Our great Master administered to his disciples the Passover, or last supper, without this prerogative being conferred by a visible organization and ordained priesthood. His spiritually prepared breakfast, after his resurrection, and after his disciples had left their nets to follow him, is the spiritual communion which Christian Scientists celebrate in commemoration of the Christ. This ordinance is significant as a type of the true worship, and it should be observed at present in our churches” (Miscellaneous Writings 1883-1896 p. 90).

“When Jesus directed his disciples to prepare for the material passover, which spiritually speaking is the passover from sense to Soul, he bade them say to the good-man of the house: ‘The Master saith unto thee, Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the passover with my disciples? and he shall show you a large upper room furnished:  there make ready.’

In obedience to this command may these communicants come with the upper chambers of thought prepared for the reception of Truth — with hope, faith, and love ready to partake of the bread that cometh down from heaven, and to “drink of his blood” — to receive into their affections and lives the inspiration which giveth victory over sin, disease, and death” (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany p. 156).

“The Passover, spiritually discerned, is a wonderful passage over a tear-filled sea of repentance — which of all human experience is the most divine; and after this Passover cometh victory, faith, and good works” (Message to The Mother Church, 1900 p. 15).

    Thanks Paul. My wife and I were commenting as we went to an Easter Brunch. What is this all about? Just as Christmas with Santa Claus and all the associated traditions of that season could make us miss the real meaning of Christmas — the birth of Jesus Christ — so could the Easter Bunny and the colored eggs make us miss the real meaning of Easter — a celebration of the Risen Christ. Truly this is a season to cast our nets on the right side. When we do we shall receive an abundance of good. So much that we will have to have help pulling it all in. Isn’t this guaranteed by what we are told in Ps 33 “…the earth is full of the goodness of the Lord” That truly is the meaning of a Happy Easter. Not the ABUNDANCE of what we eat at Brunch!
