From the January 1917 issue of The Christian Science Journal

"Such as I have give I thee,"— simple words that were the harbinger of a great gift, the utterance and the benison of one just awakened to the consciousness of the truth and to the power of the Christ to heal and save. From the depths of doubt and despair the impetuous, emotional Peter had risen, on the wave of a penitential spirit that was perfect in its sincerity, to an illuminated sense of the all-power and all-presence of God and of mortal man's impotency.
