Rending the "veil of matter"

Until the light of Christian Science is brought to bear upon thought, matter and material objects are considered substance by most of us. In three places, however, in the writings of Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, matter or flesh is referred to as a veil. What helpful illumination the understanding of this truth throws upon our experience!

Through the persistent and continuous denial of matter as substance, as presence, or as even a condition, the writer was lifted out of a severe physical disorder. With each presentment of pain and distress, thought was held to the truth that it was not matter that was crying out but only the veil of false belief claiming to cover or conceal the true status of man, which is abounding freedom and well-being.
