Mine is a song of praise and worship to God, our dear...

Mine is a song of praise and worship to God, our dear Father-Mother, present with us now, for the glorious, sweet, and enlightening teaching of Christian Science; and my thoughts of love and gratitude go out also to Mary Baker Eddy, our revered Leader. Since commencing the study of this practical Science (twelve years ago) I have found it solves harmoniously all my problems. Health that was ruined has been regained; impaired moral sense and intellect are sound again; hatred has been replaced by love, a misanthropic disposition by kindness, inertia by activity; while peace and joy have dispelled anxiety and sadness.

When I began to study Christian Science, I imagined a moment must speedily come when I would have no more problems; but this was a mistake. As I progress, I see, on the contrary, that when any one problem is solved, another appears. But this I can state with deep joy and gratitude: that now I no longer fear them; for I have realized that I am at school, under the guidance of the Teacher of teachers, divine wisdom; and that only by applying myself wholeheartedly to these problems can I come out of my earthly self, or, as the apostle says, "put off the old man with his deeds; and . . . put on the new man."

This "new man," Christian Science has shown me, is the only real man. So when, very often in the struggle, the cry of the publican rises from my heart, it is immediately followed by the joyous assurance that this publican is not the child of God; but that my real self is. For God has not created His child a publican, capable of resisting Him or of going astray. He made His child in His own likeness, and gave him dominion; and this God-created child alone is real, alone is present.
