From the October 1965 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Why did Mary Baker Eddy establish a daily newspaper? Why did she make this unexpected achievement the culminating act in her magnificent career? The reasons are written large in the history of our time.

The Christian Science Monitor provides its readers with the information through which they can fulfill their duties to society in this crucial age. It equips them for spiritual citizenship. Thus it gives them rich opportunities for individual growth, for participation, for enlistment, in the greatest of crusades.

The salvation of the human race at this stirring moment in history may be said to depend on two factors: a knowledge of the problems to be solved and an awareness of the Truth which will solve these problems. The Monitor furnishes information by means of which the world's malady may be diagnosed. Christian Science itself presents the healing Truth.
