In love and gratitude to God, and to Mrs. Eddy, the
interpreter of Jesus' beautiful teachings, I wish to tell
of some of the benefits which I have received from
Christian Science. It is a little over a year since
Science found me in a deplorable condition, physically
as well as mentally. I had ailments of many years'
standing, - chronic stomach trouble, severe eye trouble,
made almost unbearable from the constant fear of
losing my sight (a fate which had befallen my
mother), also a painful rupture of twenty-five years'
standing. These ailments, combined with unhappy
conditions in my home, made me very despondent. I
had entirely lost my belief in an all-merciful God, and
I did not know where to turn for help. At that time
Christian Science was brought to my notice, and I shall
never forget the sublime moment when I perceived that
an all-loving Father is always with me. Forgotten was
all sorrow and worry, and after four weeks' reading in
Science and Health all my ailments had disappeared.
I am to-day a healthy, contented woman.
All this has come to pass in one short year, and my
earnest desire is to be more and more worthy to be
called a child of God. This is in loving gratitude for
an understanding of this glorious truth. - Mrs. R. J.,
