Healed ‘quickly and wholly’ after riding accident

About six months ago I was thrown off a horse. In addition to the general soreness I felt, as the evening went on it became clear that the leg that had taken the brunt of the impact couldn’t support much weight, that something wasn’t quite right with my nose, and that I couldn’t move my neck without severe pain.

Yet, having experienced and read about (in this and other Christian Science publications) many inspiring Christian Science healings, I was convinced that quick and whole healing was a real possibility. In the Manual of The Mother Church, Mary Baker Eddy uses the phrase “quickly and wholly” to describe the healing power of Christian Science (p. 92). One thing I love about that passage is that it not only points to the effectiveness of Christian Science, but also nudges us to be active in our efforts to demonstrate this Science. It’s a galvanizing statement.

The next morning I reached out to a Christian Science practitioner, who immediately agreed to provide Christian Science treatment. He pointed me to this passage in Mrs. Eddy’s book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, the textbook of Christian Science: “The spiritual reality is the scientific fact in all things. The spiritual fact, repeated in the action of man and the whole universe, is harmonious and is the ideal of Truth. Spiritual facts are not inverted; the opposite discord, which bears no resemblance to spirituality, is not real” (p. 207).
