From the October 1942 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Into a land torn with human strife came the babe Jesus, he who was to bring to the world the light which, by revealing man's true nature as the son and heir of God, was to rouse the elements of evil to their limit, and finally to their self-destruction. Impersonal evil, as manifested in Herod, fearing for its own safety, recognized in the birth of Jesus the challenge of a superior power, and would have caused the babe to be slain, had not the spiritually-minded Mary and Joseph received from God a warning of this cruel intent.
