Praying for victims of tragedy

From the February 26, 1996 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


The compassion Mary Baker Eddy felt for those in need and the breadth of her love for humanity are brought out in her statement "From the interior of Africa to the utmost parts of the earth, the sick and the heavenly homesick or hungry hearts are calling on me for help, and I am helping them" ( The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 147 ).
