Much thought is being given, and rightly so, to the problem of juvenile delinquency. Certain human measures, both preventive and corrective, are manifestly desirable and necessary. But the ultimate answer to this, as to all human problems, lies in the teachings of Christian Science.

In an address given in The Mother Church in 1895, Mary Baker Eddy made some statements that are particularly pertinent to the handling of delinquency. One such statement, recorded on page 107 of "Miscellaneous Writings," reads as follows: "Three cardinal points must be gained before poor humanity is regenerated and Christian Science is demonstrated: (1) A proper sense of sin; (2) repentance; (3) the understanding of good."
