No limits

To gain even a glimpse of the truth that man is free from limitations of matter, disease, sin, lack, inability, and fear is wonderfully freeing. Mrs. Eddy states in Miscellaneous Writings, "Mind is not confined to limits; and nothing but our own false admissions prevent us from demonstrating this great fact." Mis., pp. 42-43.

In stating this truth, Mrs. Eddy is answering a specific question about healing. Yet she herself certainly demonstrated its broader implications in many ways. In an age when few women had opportunities for higher education or advance in the business world, and even fewer could vote, she discovered the Science of Christ and the efficacy of treating disease through spiritual means. She wrote the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health. She established the Church of Christ, Scientist, to reestablish the practice of Christian healing. She organized it as a worldwide Church, and in her eighty-eighth year she founded a newspaper, The Christian Science Monitor, that has won international renown. She allowed no argument of human limitation to prevent the fulfillment of her God-given mission.
