Christian Science is the only...

Christian Science is the only religion I have ever known. In fact, four generations in our family have been blessed by being students of this wonderful truth. Of all the healings we have had in our family of four, I shall relate two.

When I was in a university as a student, I became ill with what I thought was tonsillitis. Wanting to bring about the healing through my own prayers, I struggled with this for about two weeks. On a certain Wednesday I could not get out of bed. My parents were informed of this and came and took me home. My mother, a consecrated practitioner, worked for me. On Thursday morning I could not utter a word, and that night I felt, to mortal sense, that I was passing on. On Friday I was better and went back to school the following Monday completely healed.

I did not know until a year later that the symptoms were apparently those of pneumonia, but my mother had refused to see anything but perfect man. Mrs. Eddy says in Science and Health (pp. 476, 477): "Jesus beheld in Science the perfect man, who appeared to him where sinning mortal man appears to mortals. In this perfect man the Saviour saw God's own likeness, and this correct view of man healed the sick."
