THE CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR AND ITS FUNCTION

The establishment of The Christian Science Monitor by Mary Baker Eddy came as the inevitable and natural unfoldment of her love for humanity, as did the founding of her Church. This love is expressed in her statement in "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany" (p. 353), "The object of the Monitor is to injure no man, but to bless all mankind."

This purpose clearly identifies the Monitor with the mission of the Church of Christ, Scientist, for this mission, or function, of the church is a completely loving one. It is to bring the liberating truth of man's spiritual being in God as divine Mind's idea to a world crying out for help amid chaos and confusion stemming from the enslaving belief that life is in matter.
