Joy to the World – Merry Christmas to all!

Peace on Earth, Good will toward all men!

“Again loved Christmas is here, full of divine benedictions and crowned with the dearest memories in human history — the earthly advent and nativity of our Lord and Master.  At this happy season the veil of time springs aside at the touch of Love.”   Mary Baker Eddy

“Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.”  Calvin Coolidge

“A good conscience is a continual Christmas.”  Benjamin Franklin

“I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.”  Charles Dickens

“Christmas, my child, is love in action. Every time we love, every time we give, it’s Christmas.”  Dale Evans

“This is the Christmas message:  We are never alone.”  Taylor Caldwell

“Christmas gift suggestions:  To your enemy, forgiveness.  To an opponent, tolerance.  To a friend, your heart.  To a customer, service.  To all, charity.  To every child, a good example.  To yourself, respect.”  Oren Arnold

“Christmas Eve was a night of song that wrapped itself about you like a shawl.  But it warmed more than your body.  It warmed your heart…filled it, too, with melody that would last forever.”  Bess Streeter Aldrich

“I love to observe Christmas in quietude, humility, benevolence, charity, letting good will towards man, eloquent silence, prayer, and praise express my conception of Truth’s appearing.”  Mary Baker Eddy

Everyone is joyously wished “a happy Christmas, a feast of Soul and a famine of sense.”  Mary Baker Eddy

  1. Thank you for sharing a snapshot of the Truth and Spirit of Christmas. Each year certainly, and everyday hopefully, it becomes less and less a leap for me into this Spirit of the Christ. Mrs Eddy says, “working and praying with true motives your Father will open the way.”
