A More Humane World

The series of articles dealing with the plight of abused children just finishing in The Christian Science Monitor shows in stark delineation the need for spiritual enlightenment of the human race. Much can and will be done to correct the inhumane treatment of the helpless young through many avenues of reform and by sympathetic watchfulness on the part of people responsible. But this is not enough. Human thought must be radically improved in general if inhumanity is to disappear from the earth.

Every individual in universal humanity contributes to the general state of the human mind. Each one brings light to the world in the measure of his Christliness, or else he brings the darkness of callous indifference to brutal conditions. So a great duty of those who know something of Christian Science is to contribute to the general thought by expressing the Christ-power that destroys evil at its roots—in consciousness. The Christ-power is manifested directly through prayer, and scientific prayer is a positive act of mercy.
