"Instant in season"
A librarian in a Reading Room was once asked by one who had come there to study many times why Christian Science did not heal him of an ugly growth on his face. Her prompt reply was that Christian Science could and would heal him when he applied it properly. He said that he had had treatment in Christian Science on several occasions, but that so far he had experienced no relief.
The librarian looked away from what seemed so evident in the form of a material growth, and humbly asked God to tell her what to say to this man that would inspire and comfort him. Instantly the answer came and she said, "Perhaps you are to do your own work on this now." He replied: "I read my Lesson every day and study as well as I know how. What more can I do?"
Again the angel message came: "But do you love enough? You know, Love dissolves all that is unlovely." He gave this some earnest thought and asked the librarian to repeat it to him again, and she did so. Then he said quietly, "I'll try to be more loving." This seemed to be quite a task, since he was inclined to be argumentative.
