Brother Mandus was uninterested in the formation of a specific group which might carry on in the fashion of New Thought centers, but rather, he says "the whole of our enterprise is dedicated to helping other churches, whether New Thought or orthodox, to lift their vision and express their love and faith, and to inspire people to come with these spiritual qualities into the church of their choice.

He felt personally that the "real possibility for New Thought lies in introducing the principles in a form which can be adopted and accepted by the whole spiritual community. An average mischievous youngster in school, he and a companion, in celebration of Guy Fawkes Day and the Gunpowder Plot to blow up the Houses of Parliament, had made gunpowder with chemicals bought with their pooled resources, constructed bombs of ink bottles filled with the powder, and nearly succeeded in blowing up the house and neighborhood.

Naturally they received a sound thrashing. As an aftermath of this experience, he says, standing one day before a mirror in a gilt frame, somehow he knew that "there was only eternal life and endless security.

At nineteen years of age he went to South America, where he spent seven years. Returning to England at twenty-six, he visited a friend who had undergone a remarkable change since they had last met, and they talked of things spiritual until the small hours of the night, when, he says, he was filled with a Power from beyond himself and knew he had to respond to it.

He had not up to that time even owned a Bible. He got one next morning and opened it first to John 15, "I am the true vine. Meanwhile he had been introduced by a friend to the most important practice he had ever known, how to meditate in the Silence.

And in this practice he spent many hours. People came to share their troubles with him and he was able to help them. He decided to close his present business, which had suffered severe financial reversals, and begin a full-time healing ministry.

He writes, "I was a man on a mission and the happiest man in the world. His first patient was a woman of some sixty years of age , suffering with arthritis in the legs and badly crippled. She was completely healed, he reports, apparently instantly, after prayer - a wonderous sign to him. He knew, he says, that "this Love-Power of Christ is the same today as it ever was" and "in this one act of answered prayer was potentially the complete solution to every problem on earth, from personal disease and disaster right through to warfare.

Then people began writing for healing intercession, and so the ministry was extended until before long hundreds of letters were received daily from all over the world, and Brother Mandus reports that many were healed and blessed in this way. It soon became evident, he writes, that the Power of the Written Word in letters formulated in prayer is effective without limits of time and space. A little later he felt that he should take his gospel out into the world. He had had no training in public speaking, but when invited to address a company of people he did so without notes, and as he began speaking all nervousness disappeared and he was given words to say.

He eventually spoke to crowded halls and churches all over the world, and always, he relates, the words are given to him as he speaks. One night it came to him that he should publish a free monthly magazine devoted to the principles he was teaching through the Sanctuary and through correspondence. And there was always money to pay the printing and postage bills. As the first Sanctuary became unavailable, another and larger was offered, and when this was outgrown the present Sanctuary and World Healing Crusade headquarters were acquired.

Here a dedicated staff carries on the work that Brother Mandus started. Letters from all over the world are received daily and placed on the altar, "and the needs of every one are given to the Father for divine adjustment. They have proved that the Love-faith-prayer consciousness when released into the written or spoken word, even in a tape recording or over the radio, releases the same power to those who are receptive to it.

In their worldwide work with tape recordings of healing prayer and spiritual teaching they have discovered that they can convey the same "prayer Consciousness to those who listen to them, perhaps ten thousand miles away and months or years later. Our fellowship in spirit and his constant example of the Christ way of life forever inspired me to go steadfastly on the course into which the Lord was directing me.

His ideas and language are clearly those of New Thought although he was sometimes more orthodox in his terminology than most New Thought leaders.

Here is an example of his basic philosophy given in the Crusader October, which seems to be precisely what Thomas Troward taught: "The one most important realization of all is that there is One Mind of God, and that the human mind conscious and subjective, is the gift of Divine Mind for use in a personal way.

In truth the individual mind is like a wave on the surface of the ocean, one of millions of similar waves. Each wave is an individual in itself, but one with every other wave in the deeps of the ocean.

The water of the wave is the water of the ocean. He projects universes in Divine imagining; we project our limited creativeness in the tiny self and our civilization, but we use the same power. The All, the Omnipresent, the Perfect Law, Mind, Consciousness, is also the loving Father, manifesting His Perfect Love on a personal level which is, if not easily understood or explained, at least more attractive to the average person whose concern is not a nicely logical system of thought, but the satisfaction of some deeply felt personal need.

His ability to express the essential New Thought ideas in terms familiar to the orthodox believer made him welcome in the pulpits of many orthodox churches therefore.

The Voice of Brother Mandus

For we come to sit in the radiance of Thy Divine Love, to submit ourselves completely to Thee, knowing that in Thy Presence we shall be experiencing Thy Love for us. Take us as we are, and reveal Thy glory in our souls and minds and bodies. Let Thy Will be done and Thy words be spoken, that we may arise into Thy Holy Spirit, to be one with Thee, one with each other, and one with all people in Heaven and earth, through Jesus Christ our Lord. The Great Silence. No matter how much we talk about God, we are always involved in opinion about that which can never be defined. No matter how much we may talk about Him, in the end we are always brought back to one basic need to experience the Presence of God as the active principle of life itself.
