"Divinity is always ready"

Today many of the peoples of the world are engaged in a struggle for freedom, self-government, and religious liberty. As a result, much thought and energy are being devoted to preparedness in various forms. While at present the use of human means is necessary in the overcoming of the evil of war, the Christian Scientist is looking to a higher source—to God, divine Mind—for protection, for the real solution to the world's problems, and for final victory over all evil.

Our true preparation in this warfare is mental, the acknowledging of the allness of God and the nothingness of hatred, greed, and domination. Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, has written (Science and Health, p. 458): "Divinity is always ready. Semper paratus is Truth's motto." Thus it can be seen that actually it does not take time, money, or raw materials to be prepared to vanquish error, for the truth of being, or divine understanding, which meets our present need is always at hand, and always ready. Our understanding of this divine fact is made manifest humanly in sufficient wisdom, intelligent management, and ample supply of all that may be needed.
