I want to express gratitude for a healing which came to me through the application of the truths of Christian Science. One day while at work, I was standing by a pump which was pumping a supply of chemical for a water purifying system. Suddenly a hose at the discharge side of the pump burst, and I received a shower of this caustic chemical directly in the eyes and face. For a moment I seemed to lose my sight completely. Quickly, however, the angel thought came that man's sight is spiritual and cannot be lost. My sight immediately returned.

My fellow workers were much concerned by my alarming appearance, and it was suggested that I have medical attention at once. This I politely refused, and returned home and called a Christian Science practitioner for help. In addition, I searched the Concordance to Science and Health by our Leader, Mrs. Eddy, and studied particularly what she says on page 486 regarding the permanence of the spiritual senses of man. I am grateful to say that within a few days my eyes and vision were perfectly normal. I attribute my complete healing to the truths that we are taught in Christian Science, as I used no material remedies in treating this condition.

I am thankful for The Mother Church and for branch churches, and for all they are accomplishing for the good of mankind. I am grateful for the consecrated practitioners, teachers, and students of Christian Science everywhere. I am also extremely grateful for the fact that all the suppositional powers of the carnal mind are incapable of harming God's perfect child.— George R. Hamlin, Washington, District of Columbia.
