I am very grateful that my mother became interested in Christian Science before she was married and that I attended a Christian Science Sunday School from the age of three.

I have proved Christian Science in many ways. A year ago an abscess developed in my ear; it was painful and swollen. I asked a Christian Science practitioner to pray for me. After talking to me on the telephone of God's great love for me and my perfection as the spiritual child of God, she said, "Pour in plenty of oil." By this she meant that I think deeply about the spiritual meaning of oil. I looked in Science and Health to see what Mrs. Eddy says about oil. In the Glossary I read (p. 592): "Oil. Consecration; charity; gentleness; prayer; heavenly inspiration."
