When the girl was born, her golden hair reminded her grandmother of a fine silk ribbon. So that became her name.

Favorite news podcast ever!
The news from the Monitor Daily is always so clear, insightful, uplifting, and helpful. I love that their mission of the parent paper, the Christian Science Monitor, is to “injure no man, but to bless all mankind.”
Thank you Monitor Daily!!
Breath of fresh air
Finally, a news source that isn’t plagued with opinionated bias and ONLY political talk. There are other things to report about, and you guys do that. Thanks for keeping it real and giving us the facts!
News Worth Your Time and Consideration
I am impressed with The Christian Science Monitor’s podcasts and recently, its weekly print publication. It is factual, interesting, and the most “unbent” news source I have yet to encounter. Additionally, it manages to always provide a positive outlook in its articles. For example, the recent print edition featured an article about how the pandemic can lead to reconciliation. It is intelligent, well conceived and reader friendly. This is a printed and electronic source worth your time and serious consideration.
