From the April 1921 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Mrs. Eddy's wonderfully exact use of words continually enlightens the one endeavoring to turn from the dualism of unreal sense testimony to the light of Spirit. The inspiration which comes of the turning to Principle, the one Ego, is needed to gain the spiritual meaning of the Scriptures and it is needed in just the same way to get at the profound meaning of the statements in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" and Mrs. Eddy's other works. Like the beloved disciple John, Mrs. Eddy, the Founder of Christian Science, continually points away from matter to that truth of being which reveals Spirit as not only noumenon but phenomenon as well.

In her poem, "Christ and Christmas," three stanzas read:—

Fast circling on, from zone to zone,—
Bright, blest, afar,—
O'er the grim night of chaos shone
One lone, brave star.
