THE VISION OF OUR LEADER

No better illustration of the humanitarian motive that characterizes Christian Science can be found than the establishment by our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, of the great international daily newspaper, The Christian Science Monitor. Stating its purpose she says, "The object of the Monitor is to injure no man, but to bless all mankind" (The First Church of Christ, Scientist. and Miscellany, p. 353).

Having written for newspapers from girlhood, Mrs. Eddy keenly appreciated the potency of journalism and its effect upon the thinking of the world. In her book "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 7) she states: "Looking over the newspapers of the day, one naturally reflects that it is dangerous to live, so loaded with disease seems the very air. These descriptions carry fears to many minds, to be depicted in some future time upon the body. A periodical of our own will counteract to some extent this public nuisance; for through our paper, at the price at which we shall issue it, we shall be able to reach many homes with healing, purifying thought. A great work already has been done, and a greater work yet remains to be done."
