From the December 1896 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Dear Journal: — While waiting to hear what the inaudible "Voice" would say concerning a message to you, a delightful vision has come to me of a completed circle, and at the same time the suggestion, "What can we do to hasten that Utopian period?"

The answer is given in that incomparable prayer recorded in the seventeenth chapter of John. Jesus, the Master and friend, was about to leave the disciples for already the shadow of the cross had fallen upon Him. His clear vision penetrated the mists of coming ages, and He fully realized the pressure that would come upon all who called Him "Lord."

His heart was filled with tenderness and love for His friends, so soon to be scattered abroad, and an overwhelming sense of the world's great need came sweeping in upon Him.
