This is the last article in a series that has focused on the healings brought about by Mary Baker Eddy through her reliance on God. These healings began in her childhood and continued throughout her life. Some of them have not been published previously. This series began in the January 1995 issue of The Christian Science Journal.
On the afternoon of January 26, 1908, Mary Baker Eddy left her home of fifteen and a half years in Concord, New Hampshire, and moved to Chestnut Hill, a suburb of Boston, Massachusetts. That morning Mrs. Eddy had turned to her Bible, as was her daily custom, and it opened to First Corinthians, chapter 9. After reading verses 10 through 14 to her household, she gave what John Lathrop described as a "grand talk" on "healing the sick [being] the only test of a Christian Scientist." John Lathrop diary, Church History department of The Mother Church, Mr. Lathrop was one of Mrs. Eddy's secretaries at the time. When Mr. Lathrop left Mrs. Eddy's service a month later, she told him, "Give all your time to the healing. Perfect yourself in this." Ibid.
