"I never knew you"

"I never knew you." These words from the seventh chapter of Matthew once stood out very clearly to a student of Christian Science who was struggling with a nagging physical ailment that persisted, although much good work had been done about it by herself and several loving practitioners.

This clear, ringing denial of error uncovered to her the fact that she had been meeting each attack bravely, but with the memory of old battles still very distinct in her thought. She realized that this angel message had come to rouse her to a clear realization that there never had been an error to battle with in the past, and that this realization could certainly take care of the present and the future.

Oh, the joy of being able to deny with authority the discords we hear on every side, the discussions of disease and domestic troubles, the nation-wide sense of lack of employment, poverty, and the friction and jealousy between nations and races, the accidents and crimes so vividly recorded in the daily papers! How comforting to know that we live always and forever in the spiritual universe inhabited, as Mrs. Eddy says, "by beings under the control of supreme wisdom" (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 91)!
