Foot infection yields when truth is applied

I want to express my gratitude for a new understanding of Mrs. Eddy's reassuring words (Science and Health, p. 494), "Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need." At one time my human need was to be freed from an infection in my right foot. It was most difficult for me to walk or even to stand upon it without intense pain. I attempted to solve the problem with the help of my husband; but as the infection began to spread rather than to disappear, I felt that I should call a practitioner. I was anxious to obtain this healing, for I desired to be in my place as a Reader at church on Sunday; also I had made reservations to make a short stay at the Christian Science Benevolent Association Sanatorium at Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts, and this visit was to start soon.

The practitioner assured me that nothing would stand in my way, and his courage strengthened me: but the infection continued to spread. I needed to be freed from the fear that being on the foot could irritate it and from discouragement caused by a delayed healing. Again the practitioner was called, and special help was asked for in order that I might fill my place the following day.
