Circulation Meeting on Behalf of the Periodicals, June 6, 1939

Address By Miss Margaret Morrison, Second Reader of The Mother Church

In order to talk clearly of the work of the Monitor Circulation Committee, or of any work for The Christian Science Monitor, we must begin with some appreciation of our Leader's high vision for the Monitor. We must approach an understanding of the grandeur of her purpose in establishing that important organ of The Mother Church.

It is never amiss to remind ourselves of some of the steps leading up to its establishment, that we may keep before us the ways in which our Leader worked—her vision, her consecration, her patience, her courage, her wisdom, her fortitude, her compassion, her love-lit friendliness, her self-surrender to Principle. She is our Leader; so let us make her ways our ways. As we do, we shall find all our ways improving; our individual lives will improve. Our methods of promoting our Monitor will improve. They will become wiser, more intelligent, more spiritualized, more in keeping with its character and purpose, until our newspaper will have become self-supporting because fully supported by Principle.
