No words could ever express my gratitude to God for Christian Science and for the consecrated life of our beloved Leader. Mary Baker Eddy, which enabled her to give this religion to the world.

For over thirty years Christian Science has brought innumerable blessings to me and to my son. During these years we have had many quick healings, often when our need has been great. Sometimes healings have come to me through the loving help of a Christian Science practitioner, and for all of these I am unceasingly grateful. At other times healing has come solely through my striving to gain a deeper understanding of Truth and vigorously denying material sense evidence.

One such healing, for which I am unspeakably grateful, and which came to me over a year ago, was that of sudden and complete deafness in one ear. I became aware that there was something wrong with one of my ears. Although there was no actual pain there was considerable discomfort, and the thought persisted that something needed to be removed. I actually tried to do this, but I could find nothing to remove, I knew such thinking was most unscientific, in the light of our Leader's definition of "ears" in the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health (p. 585), which reads in part as follows: "Not organs of the so-called corporeal senses, but spiritual understanding." Still mortal mind seemed very persistent in declaring that something would have to come away.
