"At a time of contagious disease, Christian Scientists endeavor to rise in consciousness to the true sense of the omnipotence of Life, Truth, and Love, and this great fact in Christian Science realized will stop a contagion." In such words does Mrs. Eddy, on page 116 of her book "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany," describe a duty and privilege which is open to every one and at all times.

Jesus the Christ healed the sick. His followers, he said, should do the same. It mattered not to him whether the disease was acute or chronic, whether it was a woman sick of a fever or a man who for thirty-eight years had been stretched helpless on his bed. He fed the five thousand in a desert place with a few barley loaves and fishes. He walked on the water, he stopped a storm at sea, he raised the dead, and he left behind him the emphatic statement that those who believed on him should do the works that he did and even greater works. As a final instruction to his disciples he declared, without a single reservation or qualification, "And these signs shall follow them that believe; ... they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover."
