The Christmas message— its healing influence

From the December 1994 issue of The Christian Science Journal


For centuries Christmas has been an occasion when individuals often make a special effort to express more selflessness and kindness, more holiness and reverence, than usual. Why does this season so deeply touch the good in so many? Why do people endeavor to hold better thoughts and do better things at this time of year than during the rest of the year? The answer may be found in the reason that Christ Jesus came in the first place and what his birth signaled to the world.
