Descensus Averni facile.—Virgil.

From the June 1905 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Between materialism and all the higher hopes and ideals of our race there is not merely a separation, there is an abyss. By the mud upon its garments materialism always betrays that it belongs to the province of clay; while our higher hopes and ideals carry upon their foreheads a radiance not born of earth, and revealing their immortal origin and destiny.
