An editorial in the Sentinel of...

An editorial in the Sentinel of September 29, 1951, entitled "The Prophylactic Art," describes the preventive power of Christian Science as I have experienced it for many years. My father went into the practice of Christian Science in 1895; so his children have had the benefit of Christian Science all through the years.

It is hard to recall the many times I have been protected and healed. One healing was of blood poisoning, affecting the leg to the knee. After a few days of treatment my father said that I was healed, although to all appearances it did not seem so. In a few hours, however, the appearance changed, and the healing became evident.

At another time, while holding a baby I began to fall down some stairs. My thought turned instantly to God, and this message came as clearly as though someone were beside me: Throw yourself back. I did so, and we slid down in safety.
