With deep gratitude and reverence...


With deep gratitude and reverence I wish to testify to the many blessings my family and I have experienced in Christian Science. My attention was called to its teachings in 1931.

Before I learned of this Science I suffered for years from very severe headaches. Materia medica could do nothing for me. After I had learned of this wonderful truth, I never again suffered from headaches. They were completely forgotten until recently, when I was reminded of them, and then I realized that I certainly had reason for gratitude.

One day soon after I had learned of Christian Science, I suddenly had a hemorrhage. I could not ask for help from a practitioner, for at that time the public practice of Christian Science was prohibited by the government. So I relied solely on my own understanding of God and pondered these words from page 495 of the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy: "When the illusion of sickness or sin tempts you, cling stead-fastly to God and His idea." I clung to these words throughout the night, and toward morning all was well.
