Loving the children

One day when Mary Baker Eddy went to a church where seamstresses plied their work, she saw a “little blind black girl sitting in the corner, where her mother would put her.” Mrs. Eddy spoke gently to the child and taught her the Lord’s Prayer and the 23rd Psalm. The next day she returned and asked the girl to repeat them. Later, the girl told a Christian Scientist that this time she “just felt enveloped in God’s great Love—and to a degree this sense of His ever-present Love has never left her.

“As she and her mother walked home that evening—she began to see—for the first time in her life.” Later, she became a lifelong student of Mrs. Eddy’s textbook on Christian Science, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures (see Joyce Ann Petit Reminiscence, In my True Light and Life: Mary Baker Eddy Collections, pp. 514–515).
