MEMORIZING THE NATIVITY OF JESUS

Only once does the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, instruct the students of this Science to memorize anything, and she does this in connection with the nativity of Jesus. Her words are (Miscellaneous Writings, p. 374), "It is most fitting that Christian Scientists memorize the nativity of Jesus." And in another article in this same book (p. 74) she tells us that "his nativity was a spiritual and immortal sense of the ideal world."

Whatever we memorize we have with us in consciousness, available any time we may desire to utilize it. True memory knows only that which is real, the ever-present ideas and thoughts which always have been, and which always will be. So, to memorize Jesus' nativity as defined by Mrs. Eddy would mean to have with us in consciousness "a spiritual and immortal sense of the ideal world," of the spiritual ideas which constitute God's creation, or universe.
