Healing through Obedience to the Church Manual

After the resurrection Jesus returned to his disciples and charged Peter with a responsibility that was to fall for all time upon those who would walk in the Master's footsteps, preaching the gospel and healing the sick. Questioning Peter as to his sincerity, "Lovest thou me more than these?" Jesus then commanded him: "Feed my lambs.... Feed my sheep.... Feed my sheep."

Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, well aware of the responsibility of shepherding the sheep and the lambs into God's fold, gave for guidance, spiritual food, and protection the Manual of The Mother Church, of which she said (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 230), "Of this I am sure, that each Rule and Bylaw in this Manual will increase the spirituality of him who obeys it, invigorate his capacity to heal the sick, to comfort such as mourn, and to awaken the sinner."
