From the June 1923 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Throughout the Christian centuries and up to the present time, many have looked for the reappearing of Christ Jesus on the plane of human consciousness; and this has sometimes been spoken of as the second coming. Even little children who have heard this thought advanced, have often longed for the healing presence of the Christ, of which we are told in the gospels; but seldom, if ever, have they received much encouragement from their inquiries in this direction; and so, with most of their elders, they came to look for deliverance from the woes of mortal experience in another world.
