[An address entitled "Circulation of the Christian Science Publications" by Mrs. Dorothy H. Eustis, read at a meeting in the interest of "Our Impersonal Missionaries," held in The Mother Church Extension on Tuesday morning, June 9, 1942]

As Christian Scientists, we have been given many assignments by our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy. One, uppermost in our hearts this morning, is the consideration of the clear, calling, awakening mission of our Christian Science publications. In their behalf and ours, Mrs. Eddy has counseled us not only to subscribe for them, but to read them—to circulate the spiritual truths therein. It is not enough to subscribe in the ordinary sense of the word, which could mean merely a monetary subscription to publications locally published.

Mrs. Eddy prophesies, "This work well done will elevate and purify the race," adding, "It cannot fail to do this if we devote our best energies to the work" (Miscellaneous Writings, p. 5). What blessings to humanity await our obedience to her behest!
