Daily Manna

The Christian Science Monitor, established by Mrs. Eddy "to injure no man, but to bless all mankind," as we read on page 353 of "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany," is the herald, among newspapers, of clean thinking and right living. Going forth as "an angel of light," it brings to the unawakened thought that cleanness of purpose which illumines ignorance. To-day, more than ever before, the world is reaching out for something better, for some sign that will show which way to turn for healing. Doubt, distrust, and fear accompany its endeavors to find good, because for so long mankind has found that the fleeting theories presented to it were but will-o'-the-wisps, beliefs without foundation, undemonstrable.

Into this maelstrom of universal struggle comes The Christian Science Monitor; and even he who runs may read a message of healing in its clean, clear print, wellbalanced pages, and absence of scare heads; and these bring forth a word of praise for an orderly, attractive newspaper. The average reader finds that the news articles in the Monitor appeal to him; they gain his commendation because of their efficiency, their recital of facts, and their clear grasp of the affairs of the nations. The beginner in Christian Science rejoices because right achievement and progressive deeds are given first place, and he is spared the necessity of constant contact with articles which speak of hate and grief and afford no strength to any one. The active worker in Christian Science is grateful for the cheering daily metaphysical article, for the editorials, and for the wholesome attitude of the whole paper. He is made aware, through the articles recording the world's work, of the efforts of evil to upset business, good government, and universal welfare; and he has an opportunity to handle these problems mentally, and so to be of use to all mankind.
