I love Christian Science

When I was eight years old, through some people my parents met, we started attending the Christian Science Society in Merlo, Argentina. I learned that God is Love, Life, Truth, and that God is incorporeal. We are the image and likeness, the reflection, of God. Practicing Christian Science has helped me a lot in school and with friends because I know that we don’t need to be afraid.

In February I went on vacation with my parents to an island. I loved seeing and being near the water. On the evening of the first day, my dad began to prepare the barbecue, and my mom and I were playing a board game, when I started to feel sick. I felt like throwing up, my stomach burned, and my heart was pounding. 

I told my mom, and she said to stay calm and that we should pray. At first I struggled a bit, but I began to pray with “the scientific statement of being” from  Science and Health. It starts with: “There is no life, truth, intelligence, nor substance in matter. All is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation, for God is All-in-all”  (p. 468). I also prayed the Lord’s Prayer with its spiritual interpretation by Mary Baker Eddy (see Science and Health, pp. 16–17). At first, the symptoms weren’t going away, so I kept praying.
