In a recent report on "the Ministry of Healing" by the Convocation of Canterbury Upper House, the Bishop of London is quoted as stating that Christian Scientists have "called attention to a truth neglected by the Church—the power of the mind over matter, and, further than that, the influence of the soul full of faith and hope over both mind and matter."

To prevent any misconception which the remark might cause, I should like to state that the healing accomplished by Christian Science is in no way the exertion of any supposed power of the so-called human mind, nor is it faith healing in the general acceptance of that term. Christian Science is demonstrable understanding of God. On page 135 of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, she writes: "The miracle introduces no disorder, but unfolds the primal order, establishing the Science of God's unchangeable law. Spiritual evolution alone is worthy of the exercise of divine power."
