For the blessed privilege of being...

For the blessed privilege of being a student of Christian Science, I wish to express my deepest thanks. When a small child I was enrolled in a Christian Science Sunday School, and as a result of the truth I learned there, I was protected from most so-called children's diseases. Later my two sons enjoyed the same protection.

When my older son was eighteen months of age, he fell into water that had been boiling just a few moments before. He was badly burned. The verdict of a neighbor who knew nothing of Christian Science was that he could not recover. However, by an earnest application of the truths of Christian Science and the realization that God is responsible for the well-being of His child, my son was beautifully and completely healed. No scars were left.

More recently my mother experienced a healing of cancer on her face. Although she thought she had worked to the best of her ability and had requested help at different times from Christian Science practitioners, the growth spread until it covered a large portion of her face. In what she considered her extremity she consulted a medical doctor. He told her that the sight in one eye, which she kept covered, was probably gone. There was nothing he could do, he said, except apply X-ray treatments, which he thought might retard the condition, but he held little or no hope for her recovery.
