In your column of "Letters to the Editor" in a recent issue a correspondent refers to the growth of mental and spiritual healing, and asks what qualifications are necessary to become a healer. If this writer refers to Christian Science, and if by healers he means Christian Science practitioners, we are glad to state most emphatically that "Tom, Dick, and Harry," to use his own words, have not the understanding of God sufficient to enable them to heal the sick in the way that Christ Jesus taught and practiced and demonstrated to his followers, without the use of any material remedies. For the practitioner to learn this method he must become so purified in thought that his desire to serve God and to help the race is uppermost. The method of healing taught and practiced by Christ Jesus was discerned by Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, and she did many mighty and wonderful works because of her consecration to God. This enabled her to give to the world the textbook of Christian Science, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures." And the reading of this book has already healed multitudes of their diseases, thus proving its desirability and usefulness in healing the sick and reforming the sinner.

Mrs. Eddy says in this book, on page 462, "Whoever would demonstrate the healing of Christian Science must abide strictly by its rules, heed every statement, and advance from the rudiments laid down;" and again, on page 483, "In order to heal by Science, you must not be ignorant of the moral and spiritual demands of Science nor disobey them."
