I shall never forget the blessed relief that came to me when she explained the spiritual fact, found in the teachings of Christian Science, that God is ever-present Love and that in reality there is no evil from which to suffer. Instantly I gained new hope and realized that here was the God that I could know, love, and serve. My despondency was immediately turned into joy.
