I know that Christian Science can heal the palsied hand...

I know that Christian Science can heal the palsied hand to-day just as Christ Jesus healed like human afflictions centuries ago. In October, 1902, my right arm began to pain me, and in a very short time I was unable to raise it from my side. The pain was so intense that I could not sleep and was confined to my bed the greater part of the time for several weeks. The physicians were kind and made every effort to relieve me, but my arm was paralyzed and entirely useless. In time it became perceptibly smaller than the left arm and seemed to be getting worse all the time. It was at length decided that I should go to the hospital and there have my arm examined to ascertain what was the cause of the trouble. After a careful examination by the physicians at the hospital they were of the opinion that nothing could be done, and that while I might regain a partial use of my arm they could give no assurance even of this. I had heard of Christian Science through my brother, who had given me a copy of the Sentinel and had told me that I could be healed. It was not, however, until I found that material remedies could do nothing for me that I consented to be treated. My husband gave his consent, and my brother was requested to write to a practitioner for absent treatment. I became better at once, and in less than a week I could sleep and had the partial use of my arm. I had treatment for four weeks, during which time I helped with my housework and in the care of our three little boys. I regained the entire use of my arm. This is more than a year ago, and there have been no symptoms of the old ailment. God healed me. I am very thankful to my practitioner for her loving guidance and to our Leader for the light she has given to suffering humanity. I am striving to learn something about this wonderful truth.
