An analogy might be drawn between the supplying of human need through Monitor advertising and supplying it through Mrs. Eddy's provision for Christian Science nurses (Church Manual, Art. VIII, Sect. 31). To be advertised in the nurses' directory in The Christian Science Journal the Christian Scientist must understand "the practical wisdom necessary in a sick room," and be able to "take proper care of the sick." This calls for a knowledge of suitable food and right care for the patient, bed-making, and other simple comforts and aids. When she was writing to a Christian Scientist who had in thought establishing a home or sanatorium where the sick could be given care in accord with the standards of Christian Science, Mrs. Eddy said, "Our cause demands a wider circle of means for the ends of philanthropy and charity, and better qualifications for practical purposes." Although later Mrs. Eddy stated her conclusion that such an undertaking should be left to The Mother Church, and although still later she asked the Church to "establish and maintain a Christian Science resort for the so-called sick," she did not withdraw her significant reminder of the needed "better qualifications for practical purposes," but rather she somewhat elucidated it. Her own words, quoted here, and other related statements by The Christian Science Board of Directors, are set forth in the Christian Science Sentinel of October 7, 1916, under the heading, "The Christian Science Benevolent Association."
The Literature Distribution Committee of The Mother Church, established to carry on distribution activities in its local district, is glad to cooperate with branch churches outside its immediate field by supplying them with surplus literature when this is possible.
