I have had so much help and comfort from reading the testimonies of others in the Journal and Sentinel that I should like to add my mite of gratitude for all the blessings which have come to me through the study of Christian Science, the more so as I am at present living away from any Christian Science church or society and have not the opportunity of expressing my gratitude at the Wednesday evening meetings. I am especially grateful for the spiritual uplift and the protection which I have experienced, and for the healing of influenza, and other ills which at one time embittered my life. From being a delicate woman, always ailing, with the claim of a most delicate stomach, and taking medicine constantly I have, thanks to a degree of understanding of Christian Science, become strong and able to eat anything without fear. In fact people who see me now cannot believe that I was ever so afflicted. I am naturally of a fearful and timid disposition, and I feel that but for the help received through the literature and the kind aid of practitioners and friends, I should often be in a despairing state of mind, but by degrees this temperamental difficulty is also disappearing.
I always feel so thankful that a remark of an acquaintance seventeen years ago led me to look into the teachings of Christian Science. The struggle was hard for I was much attached to the church to which I belonged, but little by little the hold was loosened, and the more I study the more I find Christian Science teachings satisfying. I am also most grateful for the privilege of being a member of The Mother Church and for our splendid daily paper, The Christian Science Monitor, as well as for the other literature.—Naples, Italy.
