Practitioner, nurse, and the seamless garment of healing

From the December 1981 issue of The Christian Science Journal

A Christian Science practitioner and a Christian Science nurse, working together in their respective roles, have the joy of bearing witness to the oneness and allness—the wholeness—of God in a manner that enfolds their patient in the seamless garment of Christian healing.

Wholeness is what healing is all about. In fact, the very words "heal" and "whole" have a common root. Healing is the establishment of a patient's moral and physical wholeness, or health. It is a scientific, Christian process that rests on and flows from the wholeness of God.

Mrs. Eddy writes, "We must learn that God is infinitely more than a person, or finite form, can contain; that God is a divine Whole, and All, an all-pervading intelligence and Love, a divine, infinite Principle; and that Christianity is a divine Science." Miscellaneous Writings, p. 16.
