THE CONTRITE HEART

From the September 1925 issue of The Christian Science Journal


FROM the depths of true repentance the Psalmist once declared, "The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise. " From his day to ours such sacrifices as these have been laid upon God's altar; and now, as then, they always result in the blessing of a rich and ever unfolding understanding of God's transcendent goodness and perfections.
