RADIO PROGRAM No. 242 - True Vision Does Not Wear Out

Speaker: One of the greatest fears that beset mankind is that one wears out as he grows older. Yet isn't it natural to expect that as one grows through experience and knowledge, his life will be fuller and richer? Our guest today, Mrs. Dorothea Skriver Thomas, of Omaha, Nebraska, met and overcame through prayer the challenge that eyesight must be expected to wear out with advancing years. We'd like you to tell us about it, Mrs. Thomas.

Mrs. Thomas: About thirteen years ago I began to be troubled with poor eyesight. My profession at that time was giving courses for adults, and in this work it was necessary for me to read from eight to ten books a month. I had always enjoyed reading and had had good eyesight, but now I read with a great deal of discomfort. This increased until I was faced with giving up my profession or resorting to glasses. However, from earliest childhood' I had relied upon Christian Science for healing every ill. My father was healed of tuberculosis after he had been told he could never recover, and my mother was healed of a severe heart condition through her study of Christian Science. I had had few serious ailments. We understood that Christian Science is a preventive as well as a curative Science.

Although I had seen many proofs of the healing power of Christian Science, my concern was so directed toward my profession and the desire to continue in it that I consulted a well-known oculist who made a careful examination. He told me there was nothing wrong that a pair of good glasses wouldn't help. He said: "Mrs. Thomas, you've passed forty. Don't fight it. Just remember that you are coming into those advancing years where we must expect this sort of difficulty."
