With a heart overflowing with gratitude for the knowledge...

With a heart overflowing with gratitude for the knowledge of Christian Science and for all the loving help I have received, I wish to testify to a few of the many blessings I have experienced during the last seven years. In December, 1912, when suffering from a very severe attack of gallstones, and other so-called incurable and chronic diseases, I decided to abandon all medical treatment and to turn to Christian Science for physical healing. I sent for "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," and after a few days' earnest study I was healed of many of the discordant conditions; only a bronchial cough which had troubled me continually for years proved obstinate, but that, too, yielded to the truth after a few days' absent treatment. I cannot sufficiently express my gratitude for all the loving help I have received from practitioners, who always respond so quickly and unselfishly to all calls on them. I am also deeply thankful for all our literature, especially for Mrs. Eddy's works, which, if studied with an honest desire to learn the truth, will cure the student of anything that troubles him, whether it is a mental or a physical ailment.

In 1914 my daughter, when away from home, was so severely burned that the doctors at the hospital to which she was taken, expressed the opinion that she would not recover. As soon as I heard of the accident I telegraphed for treatment for her and strove to overcome all fear and anxiety in myself, so that I could clearly realize God's loving care for all His children. To the doctors' amazement there was no fever and none of the usual complications, but the child's memory was affected and for many months she suffered mentally. She believed that God was punishing her for some great unknown sin, and refused to pray to a "God of wrath" or even listen to my explanation of Science. Finally all these discordant conditions disappeared, and she is gradually learning that "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble." Hernia, inflammation, blood poisoning, and influenza in its worst form have disappeared into their native nothingness when the light of Truth was brought to bear on them, and words cannot express the gratitude I feel to God and to all who have lovingly helped me with advice and treatment during these periods of trial.—(Countess) Catherine Piper, Finnhult, Snogeröd, Sweden.
