'THE MAJESTY OF CHRISTIAN SCIENCE'

AND ITS IMPERATIVES FOR OUR TIME

Mary Baker Eddy saw the potential for greatness in all those who carry forth the torch of Christian Science. Not greatness as the world so often defines it, but greatness born of Christly humility and the willingness to sacrifice for a Cause greater than words can convey. It is this impulse that compels us all to care deeply for each other and for society as a whole. It is this love for God and for humanity that radiates from the heart of every consecrated Christian Scientist.

What can be more noble, more worthy, than an absolute commitment to this "greatest and holiest of all causes"? Miscellaneous Writings 1883–1896, p. 177. Mrs. Eddy spoke of Divine Science as the Comforter that Jesus promised, See Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 55 . as the "final revelation of the absolute divine Principle of scientific mental healing," Ibid., p. 107 . the leaven of Truth to world thought, mankind's ultimate defense from pandemics, from extremes in human behavior and weather, from materialistic systems of religion and medicine, even from material existence itself. She wrote that "... the majesty of Christian Science teaches the majesty of man," The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 188 . and she demonstrated its destiny through her life and life's work—to encircle the globe, to embrace all humanity with genuine spiritual healing.
