Peace is the pearl which individuals and nations have been striving to possess since time immemorial. Isaiah foretold the coming of peace when he described the Messiah, or Christ, as "The Prince of Peace." And when this "Prince of Peace" did come, he was heralded by the song of angels, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will towards men."
The holy work of this messenger of peace, carried on in the spirit of infinite, tender Love, brought peace to all those who with open minds entered his atmosphere of thought. The Master could not have left a more reassuring legacy to his followers than the peace he brought with him. Hence his comforting words towards the close of his earthly mission: "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." His coming, his work, and his departure all proclaimed peace.
His message, intended for all times and peoples, Christian Science has brought to light again in its revelation of the everpresence of the Christ, God's manifestation. The Christ–peace, and there is no other, is absolutely independent of place and time, of political and economic conditions, of riches or other human circumstances.
