Paul says (Rom. 12:2), "Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind." Christian Science has brought me so many healings that I would not have the space here to relate them all. But I would like to point out the fact that physical healing is frequently I accompanied by—or, perhaps more exactly, accomplished by—a change in character.

For many years I suffered from attacks of quinsy sore throat. They sent me to bed, and at times I feared I was passing on. I had begun the study of Christian Science at the urging of a dear sister and, as my understanding grew, had had numerous healings with the prayerful help of practitioners. But impatience and irritation with, and even hate for, a near relative made me very critical. A patient practitioner stressed my need to love more, but I would often forget her advice. Self-pity insisted that the fault was largely due to the selfishness of "the other fellow."
