A CALL FOR COMFORT

THERE IS A SELF-RIGHTEOUS extremism that afflicts the world today. We see it in the assassination of world leaders; we also see it in the intolerance that marks people's attitudes toward one another. In too many cases, once one believes his or her cause is right, the ends justify the means.

It isn't hard to feel the world's ache for relief, for peace. There is a deep desire for a respite from the onslaught of violence around the world—both in word and deed. One of the writers of a psalm in the Bible noted how his bed was soaked with tears; one can understand the frustration, pain, and anguish that he felt. This helps us feel the urgency that lies behind the Bible's proclamation we hear so often this time of year; "Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God" (Isa. 40:1). This demand is genuine, a call by divine Love itself for healing. Divine Love's call for comfort—for a recognition that its aid is at hand, that its rule and order should take hold in consciousness—demands to be heeded.
