When Christ Jesus prophesied that the Father would send "another Comforter" to mankind, he described that Comforter as "the Spirit of truth" (see John 14). He said that the Comforter, or Holy Ghost, would bring to remembrance all that he had said. And then he gave this benediction: "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you." Our Master foresaw the spiritual peace which would accompany the understanding of the truth he taught and lived.

Christian Science fulfills the Master's prophecy, which implies that both the letter and the spirit of the Science of Life must be known. Students often grasp quickly the letter of this Science but find themselves wondering what they lack when healings do not follow their affirmations of Truth. Mary Baker Eddy makes clear what is needed when she writes in "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany" (p. 130), "The spirit of Truth is the lever which elevates mankind."
