Binding up the Broken-hearted

"If we would open their prison doors for the sick, we must first learn to bind up the broken-hearted." Thus writes Mrs. Eddy on page 366 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures." It is plainly evident that this simple, clear statement presents both a primal and a tremendously important rule, which must be understood and practiced if true Christian Science healing is to be accomplished. All Christian Scientists are aware that this dictum of their Leader marks out the path for the successful practitioner, and there is no one of them who is honestly striving to demonstrate Christian Science in the healing of the sick who does not know that finally he must obey it.

All true Christian Scientists are longing to bring this healing to the world in the full measure which Jesus promised should be possible to his followers when he said, "He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do." But first we must learn to "bind up the broken-hearted"! And just how is this to be done? Just how are we to do this work which our beloved Leader considers so necessary as a preliminary to the healing of the sick?
