Mrs. Eddy defines angels as "God's thoughts passing to man" (Science and Health, p. 581 ). This was beautifully proven to me some time ago. In the house where I lived two persons passed on with influenza. This gave me much concern, with the consequent result that I was seized with the same symptoms, and although I worked diligently for a week, as we are taught to do in Christian Science, the condition seemed to get worse, so it was deemed advisable to call for help from a practitioner. I was attending to my regular duties the best I could under the circumstances, but was so ill that I told the practitioner I would have to go home and go to bed. She, however, assured me that this was not necessary, that whatever my duties were I was about my Father's business, and with this assurance I again resumed work. Within an hour the thought came to me, "He sent his word, and healed them." Needless to say, I was better in a short time, and in two days was perfectly healed.

This experience meant very much indeed to me. It made me realize more fully the ever presence of God and His constant care and protection, regardless of the seemingly insurmountable difficulties which present themselves in our daily lives. Christian Science is the greatest thing that ever came into my life, and words are inadequate to express my gratitude to our beloved Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer of this wonderful truth and Founder of this great movement.—M.
