From the November 1912 issue of The Christian Science Journal

CHRIST JESUS announced his mission to mankind in these prophetic words : "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the broken-hearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord. " Thus briefly did the Master outline the task he had taken upon himself, in fulfilment of the Father's will, and we find him speedily about the Father's business,—preaching in the synagogues and healing those sick of divers diseases that were brought to him, and often stopping by the wayside, as he journeyed from city to city, to comfort some afflicted one.
