I wish to express my gratitude for what Christian Science...

I wish to express my gratitude for what Christian Science has done for me and for what it is doing day by day. About five years ago I was healed instantaneously, through the kind help of a Christian Science practitioner, of a longstanding organic trouble which physicians had pronounced chronic. Several doctors had treated me and had made every effort to restore health, but without avail. I had had electric treatments and had taken sea voyages and resorted to change of climate advised by physicians, but without results. I was not a little surprised, therefore, when I was healed through Christian Science in one treatment. Not having the slightest idea how this wonderful work had been accomplished, I wanted to know more about Christian Science. When I thanked the practitioner for her splendid work she replied, "Do not thank me, for God has healed you." Then, of course, I had a desire to learn to know who or what God is and how He heals, and I immediately took up the study of Christian Science.

The more I study it the more I rejoice and daily give thanks unto God, divine Love, for having led me to the truth. Jesus the Christ said, "I can of mine own self do nothing;" also, "It is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom." I am indeed grateful for a glimpse of the kingdom, for the spiritual awakening, and for a right concept of God and His creation. I am grateful for having found the religion which teaches us how to pray aright and to demonstrate the truth,—a religion of Love. Through the application of Christian Science I have received a great many blessings. I have been able to overcome grief, knowing that there is no separation in Mind. I have learned how to overcome loneliness, impatience, and resentment. My sister and I were wonderfully protected in the midst of a terrible conflagration by putting into practice the little understanding we have gained of Christian Science. I realize more and more each day that the faith I thought I had in God before I came into Christian Science was nothing but a blind belief, for the apostle James tells us that "faith without works is dead." The Bible was a closed book to me until "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy revealed its truths to me.

For several years I have been traveling with my husband, and while years ago I used to take all kinds of material remedies with me, I now have only the Bible and Science and Health, for God is my only Physician. I know that God is a very present help in trouble. I am also most grateful for our periodicals, which are a great help to me. I am grateful to Christ Jesus the Way-shower, and to our dear Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, who has so unselfishly revealed this wonderful truth to the whole world.—(Mrs.) MATILDA GOTTHELF LEVY, Jacksonville, Florida.
