In Science and Health by Mary Baker Eddy...

In Science and Health by Mary Baker Eddy we read (p. 162), "Christian Science brings to the body the sunlight of Truth, which invigorates and purifies." How well I know the truth of this statement! For years I had been ill, suffering from weak lungs and a heart condition, and a good part of my time was spent in bed.

At one time, while I was visiting in the home of my parents, the suffering became very acute. My sister, who had had help in Christian Science, asked if she should call a medical doctor or a Christian Science practitioner. I was not interested in calling either, for my faith had really been shaken by this time. However, I agreed to let her call a practitioner, who said she would do prayerful work for me and told us to read certain passages from the Bible and from Science and Health. To please my sister, I listened to the reading.

The practitioner worked for me for about three days, and I was completely healed. I have never again resorted to material means, and I have had such a wonderful release from bondage. That was eight years ago, and there has been no return of the difficulty.
