Can We Not Watch?

From the September 29, 1945 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


No more poignant cry has ever been uttered than that query of Christ Jesus to his sleeping disciples in the garden of Gethsemane, "What, could ye not watch with me one hour?" Today through the dream of the warring senses that penetrating question comes to every student of Christian Science. Can we not watch with the Christ, Truth, that salvation from all evil may be made manifest? This our watch is not necessarily from the garden of Gethsemane, but it can be from the mount of revelation to which we have been led by Christian Science.
