It has been a great blessing to...

It has been a great blessing to me and my whole family to live according to the teachings of Christian Science, the way of Life, for many years; through this period numerous benedictions and healings have come to us. Our children have grown up harmoniously protected and guarded by the all-knowing and all-loving God. Since the days when I became a Sunday School pupil at the age of twelve, there has been an unfolding of worthwhile and good achievements in my experience as I have aimed at following the example set by the Master, Christ Jesus, through the study of the Bible and of the teachings of Mrs. Eddy.

I recall an experience that happened when I was a boy. With two friends, I climbed a very steep and high mountain in the Andes which was behind the farm where I was staying for the winter holidays. Upon reaching the summit after a half day's toil, we sat up there eating our meal and admiring the magnificent view that spread out under our feet on that clear and sunny day.

We soon noticed a few birds living in the strong wind that blew up the valley; they looked small because of the distance but we soon realized that they were condors. They approached the hill and started flying around it in a big circle without moving their ten-foot wings. Little by little they closed in, and the three of us found ourselves watching the tight ring out of which a dozen or more pairs of eyes were looking at us steadily and in such silence that we could hear the hiss of the wind under the feathery edge of their wings.
