Miscellaneous Writings 263:5-14 by Mary Baker Eddy:
These two words in Scripture suggest the sweetest similies to be found in any language -- rock and feathers:"Upon this rock I will build my church;" "He shall cover thee with His feathers." How blessed it is to think of you as "beneath the shadow of a great rock in a weary land," safe in His strength, building on His foundation, and covered from the devourer by divine protection and affection. Always bear in mind that His presence, power, and peace meet all human needs and reflect all bliss.

From: Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy,
The physical healing of Christian Science results now, as in Jesus' time, from the operation of divine Principal, before which sin and disease lose their reality in human consciousness and disappear as naturally and as necessarily as darkness gives place to light and sin to reformation. Now, as then, these mighty works are not supernatural, but supremely natural. They are the sign of Immanuel, or "God with us," -- a divine influence ever present in human consciousness and repeating itself, coming now as was promised aforetime.
To preach deliverance to the captives [of sense],
And recovering of sight to the blind,
To set at liberty them that are bruised.
