FROM JUDAISM TO CHRISTIAN SCIENCE

For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles.—1 Corinthians, 12, 13.

It often afforded me a sense of satisfaction, that the birthplace of Copernicus had been mine also. I would stand at the foot of his monument and admire the moral courage of the great astronomer who had dared to overthrow a world's false conceptions regarding the planets. How little was his mission, compared to the one our dear Leader was led to fulfil, teaching us to enter into the unexplored fields of infinite Mind, giving us the Key of the Kingdom.

Born of Jewish parents, I did not have the opportunity to become acquainted with the life and teachings of our Master. The New Testament was not allowed to enter into my home, and to pronounce the name of Jesus was considered an error. But God leads us in paths that we have not known. My Sunday School gave me very little comfort. The teacher was so cross with the children that his teachings did not make the least impression on me. I formed a great liking for my Gentile schoolmates, and they reciprocated my affection. Their honest thoughts uplifted me, and occasionally I would steal away to their Sunday School.
