As one reads the grateful testimonies from mothers all over the world of the blessing that Christian Science is proving in their home-life,—of their little ones restored to health, of crooked limbs made straight, those condemned to invalidism set free from the rule of material law,—one's heart goes out in love to the earnest woman who rose above the mists of self-pity, the contemplation of her own wrongs, to find her happiness in pointing out the way to others.

To Mrs. Eddy there was revealed the secret of all true happiness, for she says in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 57): "Happiness is spiritual, born of Truth and Love. It is unselfish; therefore it cannot exist alone, but requires all mankind to share it." At the present time much is being done for the education of mothers. Classes are being held where they may learn how best to care physically for their little ones; but as one reads the reports of this work, excellent as far as it goes, one realizes it is a very small and inadequate way of meeting the children's needs. For from the moment the tiny clinging fingers reach out for the love we pray may never be denied them, their need is that from the first dawning of consciousness they should not be forbidden the Christ, the knowledge of the truth which shall set them free from all that is unlike God.
