"Why weepest thou?"

From the April 1968 issue of The Christian Science Journal


"Woman, why weepest thou?" John 20:13, 15; Twice was Mary Magdalene thus questioned that first day of the week when, in the early morning dark, she stood outside the empty sepulcher weeping. So great was her grief, her sense of love lost, her feeling of futility and despair, that even when she saw Christ Jesus standing near, she did not know him.
