I wish to testify to the healing efficacy of Christian Science

From the October 11, 1919 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel

I wish to testify to the healing efficacy of Christian Science. In the spring of 1914 I was told by one of the best medical men in London that it would be many years before I could ever lead a normal life, that my spirit and vitality would wear me out. At that time I had been in bed more or less for eight months and tired for eight years. I got my healing in Christian Science, and when the war came on in August I started a life of activity which has gone on without ceasing, for five years. We have had a military hospital on our place and twenty-four hundred wounded have passed through it. The chief surgeon told me before sailing for Canada that in all of his experience he had never seen a woman able to do more.

The last baby was born with only the help of a loving Christian Science practitioner. A doctor was in the house but he was not needed and only came in after the child arrived. I should like for the sake of others to say that this birth was entirely without pain. I have six children and the others were born with the usual suffering.

The joy of knowing that God is good, and the spiritual knowledge, are of course far greater than any physical healings. Above all is that wonderful sense of knowing that through our understanding of Christian Science we can help the whole world. I am indeed grateful to our Leader, Mrs. Eddy.—
