Healed of symptoms of hepatitis

Originally written in Spanish, this first appeared in the October 2016 French, Portuguese, Spanish, and German editions of The Herald of Christian Science.

I was married in the United States, and my husband and I lived there for three years until we moved to Mexico, where I had requested a work visa. I had to go to the border and cross over to the American side to pick it up.

Just before I left, my mother-in-law and two other people told me I had symptoms that looked like hepatitis. I noticed they were all concerned, and one of them told me I should see a doctor. However, I decided not to, because, for me, the remedy lay in prayer. 

As soon as I got to the border, I called a Christian Science practitioner for help through prayer. He agreed to pray for me and helped calm the fear I was feeling. He suggested I study a section from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures where the author, Mary Baker Eddy, asks, “What is Mind?” She answers: “Mind is God. The exterminator of error is the great truth that God, good, is the only Mind, and that the supposititious opposite of infinite Mind—called devil or evil—is not Mind, is not Truth, but error, without intelligence or reality” (p. 469).
