Episode Summary

Throughout the centuries, a few rare souls have claimed to experience stigmata, the act of spontaneously developing bleeding wounds on their bodies. The location of these wounds correspond to the spots where Jesus suffered injuries on the cross: the forehead, hands, feet or sides. Believers feel that stigmata is a divinely inspired miracle. Skeptics claim it to be a fraud designed to attract attention or inspire the faithful. Several famous cases are profiled, including a priest who suffered with it for fifty years, and a young girl in a coma who currently attracts throngs of pilgrims.moreless
