When divine Love melts grief

From the February 2022 issue of The Christian Science Journal


In the seventh chapter of Luke in the Bible, Christ Jesus compassionately healed a widow’s grief by restoring her only son to life, near the gate of the city Nain (see verses 11–16 ). In the culture of the time, women relied upon male relatives for their social and economic well-being, and widows could be left destitute without this support.
