Among the many persons who turn to Christian Science are those who have been pronounced incurable by physicians. Christian Science is not just a healing method, it is a satisfying religion, but the healing cannot be separated from it. Mary Baker Eddy, in "Rudimental Divine Science," defines it thus (p. 1): "As the law of God, the law of good, interpreting and demonstrating the divine Principle and rule of universal harmony."

The writer in your issue of October 27 refers to children, blind, deaf, dumb, and crippled in public institutions, and says, "Christian Scientists should be able to heal those children without their knowledge." We are free to choose what seems right to us as a means of relief from suffering and sorrow, and if parents and guardians of these little ones feel satisfied that all is being done that can be done, it is not for Christian Scientists to interfere with anyone's choice of treatment. When the multitude thronged Jesus, they were willing to come, to hear, and be healed; and when the sick were carried to him, someone near and dear to the sufferer was willing to resort to spiritual healing.
