Before my marriage I shared a flat with two other young women. They were not students of Christian Science. There was an epidemic of influenza in the city, and I went to help a family who had come under this condition. I stayed with them until my help was no longer needed. As I was returning home I thought how pleased my flat mates would be to see me back. Much to my surprise, the reception I received was decidedly cool. I soon learned that they were resentful because they were afraid I had brought influenza back with me and that we would all be ill.

That night on going to bed I manifested the symptoms of influenza. I prayed earnestly, declaring that I could not be penalized for helping others, and affirming that my true nature is spiritual and perfect. I asserted that divine Love knows nothing about influenza, for there is no disease in God's kingdom. I prayed, slept, woke, and prayed again, all through the night.
