Refuge for refugees

Christ Jesus helped suffering people. Whether they desired release from disease, lack, or sin, the Master discerned their needs and filled them.

What happened to these people, however, meant far more than the transformation of sick, immoral, or needy mortals into physically and morally sound, satisfied ones. When Jesus saw those in need, his penetrating insight went beyond materiality; he saw them as they really were and are: loved ideas of Mind. And the people felt bathed in this spiritual love. No wonder they crowded around him and were healed.

Today the spectacle of suffering humanity is no less severe. There are estimated to be fourteen million men, women, and children fleeing either war or political and economic oppression. Currently ten thousand people are seeking escape from Cuba, looking for human rights and economic opportunity in other countries. And boatloads of Haitians land on the south Florida coast, attempting to break away from desperate poverty and political hardship.
