From the June 1961 issue of The Christian Science Journal

People unacquainted with Christian Science may ask how it is possible for material conditions to be changed by spiritual thinking and how a body, generally thought to be material, can be healed by spiritual means. Indeed the use of the word "miracle," implying an occurrence contrary to natural law or the usual order of events, for spiritual healing implies widespread disbelief in the possibility of control by thought over what most people believe to be material.
