Amidst the clamour of materialism and human “busyness” at Christmastime, it can be difficult to remember the real meaning of Christmas. Despite her preparations, this young mother’s Christmas seemed ruined when her husband came home ill. Read how she prayed and found her peace, and health was restored.
"And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. ... And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men."
Luke 2:10, 11, 13, 14
"In different ages the divine idea assumes different forms, according to humanity's needs. In this age it assumes, more intelligently than ever before, the form of Christian healing. This is the babe we are to cherish.”
Mary Baker Eddy
Miscellaneous Writings 1883–1896, p.370
"Where charity stands watching
And faith holds wide the door,
The dark night wakes, the glory breaks,
And Christmas comes once more."
Phillips Brooks
The Christian Science Hymnal, Hymn 222
