Christian Science has been our...

Christian Science has been our only physician for many years, and it has indeed been the pearl of great price to me.

I should like to tell of the healing of a fractured arm experienced by our son when he was fourteen years old. Previously I had often wondered what I would do if I were faced with the problem of a broken bone. Mrs. Eddy tells us in Science and Health (pp. 401, 402): "Until the advancing age admits the efficacy and supremacy of Mind, it is better for Christian Scientists toleave surgery and the adjustment of broken bones and dislocations to the fingers of a surgeon, while the mental healer confines himself chiefly to mental reconstruction and to the prevention of inflammation. Christian Science is always the most skilful surgeon, but surgery is the branch of its healing which will be last acknowledged. However, it is but just to say that the author has already in her possession well-authenticated records of the cure, by herself and her students through mental surgery alone, of broken bones, dislocated joints, and spinal vertebræ." I felt sure that I would choose Christian Science care alone if I should experience a broken bone myself, but where my children were concerned, I was equally sure that I would be much too fearful to dispense with the services of a surgeon.
