Pray the W.A.L.L. Treatment (Science & Health, 495:14) when tempted to believe your “back’s against the wall”—or the C.A.L.L. treatment to know “who you gonna call?”
On page 495, lines 14-24 Mary Baker Eddy gives you (and the whole world) four powerful (and memoizable) sentences to guide your thoughts to healing when you are tempted to believe in the reality of some illusion or ghost of fear or doubt that seems to be in your face.

W.A.L.L. Treatment (SH 495:14) These four sentences begin with the letters W, A, L, L—hence the W.A.L.L. treatment. This was a memory devise that came to me and has made it easier for me to remember the whole paragraph and use it often as a cornerstone for healings.

  • When the illusion…
  • Allow nothing but his likeness to abide in your thought.
  • Let neither fear nor doubt overshadowovercome your clear sense and…
  • Let Christian Science, instead of corporeal sense, support your understanding…”

Or it could be called the C.A.L.L. Treatment (SH 495:14) A different acronym/memory device can be made by using the first letters of the directive verbs in each of these same four sentences. They are Cling, Allow, Let and Let again—hence the C.A.L.L. treatment. This alternate memory devise came to me when tempted to be afraid of some illusion or lingering “ghostly” belief from the past, present or future (like Scrooge was in “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens). Mary Baker Eddy unknowingly answered in-advance and brilliantly the question “Who you Gonna Call?” (from the 1984 movie “Ghostbusters” soundtrack song by Ray Parker Jr.). She treated all such “ghosts” as illusions in her ultimate, metaphysical “Ghostbuster” treatment that has served as a cornerstone for thousands of healings. –“When the illusion… tempts you,

  • Cling Steadfastly to God and His idea.
  • Allow nothing but his likeness to abide in your thought.
  • Let neither fear nor doubt overshadow your Clear Sense and calm trust…
  • Let Christian Science instead of Corporeal Sense, support your understanding of being and…”

(Reread carefully and consider memorizing the FULL, 10-line Christian Science treatment in Science and Health, page 495:14-24. Note the four pairs of consecutive words (which I capitalized, highlighted and bolded above) all begin with C and S!


We’re faced with the barrage of news articles on a global pandemic and other forms of lawlessness as well as with the hopefulness of peaceful protests which attempt to transform and uplift mankind out of hateful habits and often unconscious biases of racism. To stay with the allness of God in the midst of this seeming somethingness of this evil we can always spiritualize thought as we C.A.L.L. on God and:

C. Cling steadfastly to God and His idea [Christ]

A. Allow nothing but His likeness to abide in your thought.

L. Let neither fear nor doubt overshadow your clear sense and calm trust, that the recognition of life harmonious — as Life eternally is — can destroy any painful sense of, or belief in, that which Life is not.

L. Let Christian Science, instead of corporeal sense, support your understanding of being, and this understanding will supplant error with Truth, replace mortality with immortality, and silence discord with harmony.(SH 495:14-16, 20)

Such CALL-ing on God gives us something certain to “cling steadfastly to,” and overturns what appears to be a worldwide fixation on fear. The C.A.L.L. treatment is a sure defense. It protects us as we follow the Wayshower, to find comfort and healing for our whole global family. “Jesus marked out the way. Citizens of the world, accept the ‘glorious liberty of the children of God,’ and be free! This is your divine right.” (SH 227:23-26)
