From the August 1933 issue of The Christian Science Journal

HE who reflected the deepest, purest love ever manifested on earth, who with the tenderness of motherhood would have gathered all humanity under the protecting care of divine Love, even as a hen gathers her chickens under her wings; indeed, he whose life was love, even Christ Jesus declared, "I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. " Not only this did he say in connection with human relationships, but he also promised that those who for his sake and the gospel's should forsake home and family ties should receive an hundredfold.
