Semper Paratus

THIS was the motto of Lord Clifford, and we are reminded in our text-book that it is also Truth's motto. It has struck me as peculiarly fitting to define one of the most salient features of Christian Science.

Always ready! What can be so inestimable in value to man, as that divine Principle of Being which is ever at hand to relieve every human need? At the very beginning of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker G. Eddy, a profound and impressive truth is stated in these words: "This apodictical Principle points to the revelation of Immanuel, 'God with us,' the sovereign Ever-presence, delivering the children of men from every ill 'that flesh is heir to.' " Again, on page 43: "To-day the healing power of Truth is demonstrated to be an immanent, eternal quality, or Principle, instead of a phenomenal exhibition."
