I should like to express my gratitude for what Christian Science has done for me. About eight years ago it was my privilege to work on the Literature Distribution Committee. One of my duties was to keep the free literature box filled, which was in the transfer railway station. One day while I was leaving the station, it seemed as though something gave way in my back. By the time I reached home, the pain had extended to my neck. As the time came for me to begin my midday duties, I found it impossible to arise from my chair. I closed my eyes and thought of Mrs. Eddy's words in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 14), "Become conscious for a single moment that Life and intelligence are purely spiritual,—neither in nor of matter,—and the body will then utter no complaints." Then the thoughts followed: If I am conscious that Life is God, Spirit, how can I be conscious of this mortal body; and if I am unconscious of this mortal body, how can I be conscious of any pain in this body? I arose and went about my duties perfectly free.

This is only one of the many blessings I have received in Christian Science. I am trying each day to gain a better understanding of this truth.
