THE CHRIST OUR COMFORTER

In her article entitled "What Christmas Means to Me" Mary Baker Eddy writes (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 262), "I celebrate Christmas with my soul, my spiritual sense, and so commemorate the entrance into human understanding of the Christ conceived of Spirit, of God and not of a woman—as the birth of Truth, the dawn of divine Love breaking upon the gloom of matter and evil with the glory of infinite being." The Virgin Mary's spiritual conception of Jesus bestowed upon him unprecedented spiritual power with which to bless his fellow men.

Mary conceived and brought forth her son through her spiritual perception of God as the origin of man. This spiritual perception was an inspiration of the Christ. Mrs. Eddy says (ibid., p. 261), "Jesus, the Galilean Prophet, was born of the Virgin Mary's spiritual thoughts of Life and its manifestation." These "spiritual thoughts of Life and its manifestation" included an understanding of the spotlessly pure nature of Deity.
