[Original testimony in French]

With a heart overflowing with...

With a heart overflowing with thanksgiving I give this testimony of the all-power of divine Science. "The true understanding of God is spiritual. It robs the grave of victory," writes Mary Baker Eddy on page 275 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures." How true are these words!

From the age of twenty I suffered from stomach trouble. I had consulted many doctors and taken many drugs, some of which relieved me for a short time. I also followed diets, which sometimes brought results, but they also were only temporary. When I was nearly sixty I suffered so greatly that I decided to have an X ray taken. This revealed an ulcer. I was given a new diet and a treatment by injection. "If that doesn't do you any good," said the X-ray specialist, "there is nothing left but to operate." For about eighteen months I seemed to feel better, then my state became worse. I was worn out and had to keep to my bed. I was very unhappy, and this millstone which had been weighing me down all my life, which had robbed me of all my joy and had made me extremely irritable, now threatened to crush me.

Two years previous to this, however, my daughter had been led to Christian Science, and nearly every day she said to me: "Why don't you try Christian Science? Then you will see how much better you will be." I could not believe in this marvelous thing; it seemed impossible to me that such a remedy could exist, and I persisted in my suffering. At last, at the end of my resistance, I allowed myself to be taken to a practitioner. In less than three weeks the work of the practitioner overcame this error of twenty years' duration. What words could express my astonishment and boundless gratitude! For a long time I did not ask how the healing had been brought about. But during the past seven years I have earnestly studied Science and Health, and I have realized that the practitioner really did what our great Leader, Mrs. Eddy, tells us to do on page 393 of Science and Health: "Rise in the strength of Spirit to resist all that is unlike good."
