Our two daughters were enrolled in the Christian Science Sunday School at ages five and nine. (My dear sister had just been introduced to Christian Science and was healed of grief following the passing of her husband. She had asked if we would like to send our children to Sunday School and we did, since we had seen what Christian Science had done for her.)

One child had been troubled with an infected ear almost since birth. But she hadn't been to doctors since the age of three—when we were told that none of them could help her. She had been attending the Christian Science Sunday School a few weeks when her ear again became painful. I didn't know anything about Christian Science treatment, but I did have a copy of Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy that my sister had given me. I opened to page 97 and read: "The broadest facts array the most falsities against themselves, for they bring error from under cover. It requires courage to utter truth; for the higher Truth lifts her voice, the louder will error scream, until its inarticulate sound is forever silenced in oblivion."

I read this to the child and the crying ceased. She was instantaneously and permanently healed.
