The last appearing of Truth will be a wholly spiritual idea of God and of man, without the fetters of the flesh, or

9corporeality. This infinite idea of infinity will be, is, as eternal as its divine Principle. The daystar of this appear- ing is the light of Christian Science — the Science which

12rends the veil of the flesh from top to bottom. The light of this revelation leaves nothing that is material; neither darkness, doubt, disease, nor death. The material cor-

6has taught and spoken lives, and moves in our midst a divine afflatus. Thus it is that the ideal Christ — or impersonal infancy, manhood, and womanhood of Truth

9and Love — is still with us.

And what of this child? — "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall

12be upon his shoulder."
