THE CHRIST IN CHRISTMAS

Referring to Christmas, Mary Baker Eddy writes (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 256), "At this happy season the veil of time springs aside at the touch of Love." The eternal Christ, or Truth, is never touched by the finger of time, for it exists not in time but in eternity. Through the teachings of Christian Science the Christ is unveiled and in the darkened human consciousness there is light.

At first, perhaps, it is a pale gleam, a single star on the horizon of our understanding, but it grows in brightness as we advance and gradually and inevitably reveals the true nature of man. The Christ awakens consciousness from the deep dream of materialism. The spiritual beauty, power, health, and harmony of true existence are revealed. This is the real significance of Christmas. It is the advent of the Christ in human consciousness. In this age we have revealed to us through Christian Science the living, practical Christ.
