Episode Summary

Miracle Cures
Out of desperation, people go in search of a miracle to cure their chronic or deadly health problems. Their journey take them in many directions. Some attend miracle crusades conducted by TV evangelists like Rev. Leroy Jenkins. Millions flock to Lourdes, France for the curative spring waters, even though there have been very few verifiable "miracles". Still others travel to Brazil for the spiritual surgery practiced by a man known as John of God. The questions are many and obvious: Does faith and prayer actually cure? Can the human mind heal the body? Can simply hearing the words "you're healed" be enough to encourage recovery?moreless
