From the November 1923 issue of The Christian Science Journal

In looking back over the history of the Christian Science movement and recognizing the many blessings that have been manifested through its healing ministry, being mindful also of the fact that through its ministry the Word of God is being carried to all parts of the world, thus furthering the advent of the kingdom of heaven on earth, we feel profoundly grateful to our revered Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, whose life of self-sacrifice, consecration, and devotion to divine Principle has made all this possible. Dwelling on these facts, we become deeply impressed with the magnitude of Christian Science and its far-reaching possibilities and benefactions; and as Christian Scientists we receive new inspiration and aspiration to take our stand and shoulder our responsibilities toward the world in general, and our Cause in particular, by an ever increasing desire to live the life of truly consecrated followers of Christ.
