[Original testimony in German]

In deepest gratitude I would exclaim with the Psalmist:...

In deepest gratitude I would exclaim with the Psalmist: "Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases." For years, because of bodily sufferings, such as chronic catarrh of the stomach and bowels and symptoms of colds, I had been under medical care; besides this, I had been operated on twice for trouble in the breast. Since there was no lasting improvement I lost faith in medicine and in the skill of the doctors. Because of the old belief that God sends sickness to try us, I had resigned myself to my fate.

Then, about eight years ago, I heard of Christian Science for the first time and decided to try it. While studying, I suddenly fell ill with internal pains, complicated with vomiting and fever. Because my slight understanding was not sufficient for healing, I asked a practitioner for help and was healed in two days. Since that time I have been physically well and have used no more medicine. I have devoted myself more diligently to the study of Christian Science, and through the spiritual understanding which I have gained all fear of disease and evil has left me.

For these experiences, but more especially for spiritual growth, I am inexpressibly grateful. I am truly thankful that I understand God better as infinite Love, whom Christian Science has revealed to me. Gratefully, in deep reverence, I think of our beloved Leader, Mrs. Eddy, who has opened anew to us the way of Truth, and of our Way-shower, Christ Jesus. I can only strive, day by day, to live according to what I understand of Truth in order to be a good worker in God's vineyard. I give God honor!
