"The very circumstance, which your suffering sense deems wrathful and afflictive, Love can make an angel entertained unawares." So writes Mary Baker Eddy in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures (p. 574).

That is exactly what happened when I first came to know Christian Science sixty years ago. I was still a teen-ager and very fed up with my condition—lack of energy and lack of interest in life altogether. I had been told by a blood specialist Mother took me to that I had a deficiency of red blood corpuscles and would never be able to take part in normal youthful activities like other girls of my age. My mother was also very ill at that time. A Christian Scientist came to see her and brought with her a very precious book, which she told us she read every day together with her Bible. It was Science and Health. She said she would lend it to us for one week, and asked if I would read it to Mother. This visitor came as an angel to our need.
