The Mission of Our Daily Newspaper

The Christian Science Monitor

Late last year the world was profoundly stirred by a series of event in Central Europe. Impelled by an unquenchable determination to avail themselves of man's God-given right to freedom, the peoples of Poland and Hungary rose against a system of mental and physical enslavement. In so doing, they bore moving testimony to the truth of Mary Baker Eddy's statement (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 227), "Slavery is not the legitimate state of man."

To The Christian Science Monitor, the events in Poland and Hungary were deeply gratifying but not surprising. For, from the moment of its appearance nearly one half century ago, this newspaper has worked from a single standpoint: that the future belongs to good alone. Firm in this conviction, the Monitor has taken as its objective the liberation of mankind from all that would enslave it. The events in Central Europe are but one small part of world-wide evidence of how ready humanity is for the Monitor's message of liberation.
