"My soul doth magnify the Lord"

"A life devoted to magnifying the Lord grows andexpands in beauty and splendor"

Each year at the Christmas season the story of the Nativity is told and retold. It is one of the best-loved themes throughout the Christian world, and the Virgin-mother, in the Gospel according to Luke, is quoted as saying (1: 46,47): "My soul doth magnify the Lord, and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour." in "Miscellaneous Writings," Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and founder of Christian Science, tells us (p. 75), "Mary's exclamation, 'My soul doth magnify the Lord," is rendered in Science, 'My spiritual sense doth magnify the Lord.'" And she goes on to say, "It was evidently an illuminated sense through which she discovered the spiritual origin of man." In the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mrs. Eddy writes (p. 209), "Spiritual sense is a conscious, constant capacity to understand God." It is only through the exercise of spiritual sense that we glimpse the true relationship of God and man.
