One who has been healed by the evangelical teachings and ministrations of Christian Science desires to say that it has been a great satisfaction to many thinking, conscientious people, by reason of its having opened the spiritual meaning of the Bible, which before had become practically a sealed book, with its divine message to man hidden under clouds of material interpretation. Christian Science has also done a work of vast importance to metaphysical thought in restoring the Christ to it, the Messianic power of the Word, according to Paul's injunction, "Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus." Again, in giving to philosophy the consciousness of the one omnipotent good, God, Christian Science has revealed the right attitude of thought by which all good may be appropriated and all evil excluded.

Could any one render a greater service to the world than to show the power of Truth over error in overcoming all sin, disease, sorrow, and whatever else opposes the harmony of being? Surely nothing could be a greater blessing than the attainment of the kingdom of God within man. True, there have been glimpses of what constitutes man's immunity from ills and his harmonious existence, and the ages have had their spiritual teachers and prophets who have endeavored to lead mankind into paths of righteousness; but not until Christian Science was revealed was there a definite rule by which one's own salvation could be worked out through the same divine love that brought Christ Jesus.

How deeply grateful should we be that we have with us Mrs. Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science. ... It is a sweet manifestation of the goodness of God to mankind that we have living with us this Teacher of the healing, saving mission and potency of the inspired Word. Those who know the beautiful life and the work of consecration of this venerable and wonderful woman would not hesitate to say that, as regards the spiritual blessings which she has been the means of bringing to humanity, she could easily be named the foremost benefactor of the age, and no one who did not wish to lessen those blessings would wish to challege or obscure the respect and reverence due her as a good woman and a remarkable prophet in Israel.
