Early one morning both my eyes became intensely painful, and my vision grew dim and blurred. At first I faltered, wondering whether to carry on with my study of the Bible Lesson (outlined in the Christian Science Quarterly) or pray specifically about the eye problem. Swiftly it came to me that the lesson that week was based on the Sermon on the Mount (see Matt., chaps. 5–7) and that there could be no better healing power than the purifying thoughts which lay behind that teaching. So I set to work.

I denounced the symptoms as lies that would claim to prevent me from enjoying my morning communion with the Christ, Truth. Then, very slowly, with the aid of a powerful reading lamp, I read the lesson, pondering the Bible citations, together with the correlative passages from Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. I took care to consider each line intently. It was a joyous struggle, and by the time I was almost done reading the lesson, I suddenly realized that all pain had dispersed and there was a slight improvement in my eyesight.
