The Sovereign Importance of Christian Science

Why is it right to say that the study and demonstration of Christian Science are of sovereign importance? Why should a Christian Scientist strive constantly to practice its teachings and to see its sovereign importance?

Surely no better answer to these questions could be found than in the words of the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, when she wrote in a letter to a branch church (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 283), "Right thoughts and deeds are the sovereign remedies for all earth's woe." Again, in her Dedicatory Sermon in 1895, she wrote (Pulpit and Press, p. 3), "Know, then, that you possess sovereign power to think and act rightly, and that nothing can dispossess you of this heritage and trespass on Love."

It is true, then, that Christian Science has revealed once again to the world, as Jesus did close upon two thousand years ago, the secret of all truly healthy, happy living. No other method can ever satisfactorily help or heal. There is no other universal remedy for earth's woe.
