Through years of misunderstanding and misrepresentation, Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, went serenely and confidently on with the work she believed herself called to do. She lived to see her faith adopted in many lands, to see beautiful and costly church edifices erected in many cities, both in America and abroad, lovingly dedicated to her and to her teachings. Only forty years have passed since she stood alone, the only exponent of her faith in all the world. Today thousands rise up to call her blessed, and in the Wednesday evening meetings of the denomination, clouds of witnesses testify weekly to the power of divine Love, as she taught of it, to heal from sickness and from sin. These followers constitute the monument to her memory which must most have contributed to her joy. Mrs. Eddy's place in history is secure. Her adherents are living examples of a vital faith. The church she founded holds an important place in the religious world. The voice of detraction should now be forever silenced.
