Healing perspectives from The Christian Science Monitor

Watch for new links weekly for a spiritual approach to meeting life's challenges.


The Christian Science Monitor includes a "Christian Science Perspective" article, and we select one of the articles to feature on our website each week.

Click on the links below to view some recent healing perspectives. 

A new view of normal

Is there such a thing as a “normal” that is certain and consistently good? In a word, yes – and we find it in God.

Why God is relevant

Sometimes learning about God may be low in a list of pressing priorities (or absent from it altogether). But to know God’s nature and presence is to find inspiration, love, and healing.

Praying for our teenagers

From social pressures to pandemic-related stress to specific incidents such as the ongoing violence in Belfast, it seems the world’s teenagers have a lot to deal with these days.

Green pastures

The past year has been marked by pandemic-related hardship and tragedy, but also by the resilience, hope, and light that have shone through in so many ways.

The ‘perfect’ that heals

Our lives can seem far from perfect sometimes. But a spiritual understanding of ourselves and others opens the door to healing as a woman found when she began studying Christian Science.

Courage in the face of dissension

Even when disagreement turns hostile, God has given us the courage to stand up for our inherent unity as brothers and sisters in God – which paves the way for resolution and healing.

Praying about mental health

A contributor was healed of hereditary bipolar disorder as she learned more about the nature of God as the gentle, consistent divine Mind.


About the Healing Perspectives

Each weekday, the Monitor includes one clearly labeled religious article offering spiritual insight on contemporary issues, including the news. The publication – in its various forms – is produced for anyone who cares about the progress of the human endeavor around the world and seeks news reported with compassion, intelligence, and an essentially constructive lens. For many, that caring has religious roots. For many, it does not. The Monitor has always embraced both audiences. The Monitor is owned by a church – The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston – whose founder was concerned with both the state of the world and the quality of available news.
