I have great cause for rejoicing and wish to express through the Christian Science periodicals my deep and sincere gratitude for Christian Science. During four years of study I have received so many blessings that I could not enumerate them. I have healed of organic and other diseases. In having some dental work done there was a nerve to be removed, which gave me an opportunity to prove absolutely that nerves have no intelligence of their own. When I was told that it had been removed without having been treated and without my experiencing any sense of pain, I could but give thanks to God for a degree of understanding which Christian Science has given me of the nothingness of mortal mind. I am grateful for the knowledge that Jesus' words, "If ye continue in my word . . . ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free," mean that we shall understand God and this understanding will destroy all false and sinful beliefs.

I am very thankful for the periodicals; they are indeed daily bread, giving us strength for daily needs and grace for each day. For the Monitor I have appreciation and love. It has given me a broader view and acquaintance with the world's affairs, and I feel that I could not do without it. The metaphysical message it brings daily is so helpful and encouraging. For the joy of teaching in the Sunday school and for membership in both The Mother Church and in a branch church I am very grateful, as well as for the many beautiful experiences which I have had in the free distribution of literature. I know it is only by being active that real growth comes to us. Words could never express my gratitude for these many blessings. My daily prayer is that I may so live that I may be worthy of the name Christian Scientist.
