The Christian Science Monitor

To the Editor of The Christian Science Monitor:—The instant contribution of five hundred dollars made by the Rev. Mary Baker Eddy to the fund for the Italian sufferers in this appalling calamity that touches the entire world, reveals anew (what is always being revealed) the good citizenship of the Founder of Christian Science.

Wherever there is human need Mrs. Eddy responds with an ideal promptness and liberality that invests her gift with double aid. Bishop Phillips Brooks used often to speak of "timeliness" as one of the great factors in aid and in any achievement. Mrs. Eddy's life is a gospel of timeliness.

All beliefs and all forms of religious faith are as one in the great essential of human brotherhood—for which no life of man or woman, in historic or contemporary time, has stood for a nobler ideal, constantly illustrated in daily life, than that of the Rev. Mary Baker Eddy.
