In the news media today, much space is given to anniversaries—the first man in space, the Rwandan genocide, the end of apartheid in South Africa, the 12th anniversary of 9/11, the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, last December.
As a result, it’s all too easy, especially in turbulent times, to feel “compassion fatigue” and take shelter under a sagging roof of inevitability or human fallibility. But there is wise perspective and healing in an observation made by the founder of this magazine, Mary Baker Eddy, in answering a question about John the Baptist in her Miscellaneous Writings 1883–1896: “Every individual character … at some date must cry in the desert of earthly joy; and his voice be heard divinely and humanly. In the desolation of human understanding, divine Love hears and answers the human call for help; and the voice of Truth utters the divine verities of being which deliver mortals out of the depths of ignorance and vice. This is the Father’s benediction” (p. 81).
