The Power of Miracles. What are miracles, and what might they mean? Morgan goes to Manhattan to meet a man who fell 47 stories and lived, and to Jerusalem, where he learns at Passover that miracles are the foundation of the Jewish faith. In Rome, he discovers how the Vatican makes saints through their miracles, and how ancient Romans believed the gods controlled every aspect of their lives. He explores the Chinese tradition of Daoism, in which miracles can happen because our lives are connected by a universal energy. Is a psychologist correct when he says miracles could be nothing more than random chance? Or could miracles come from the power of our minds? Cancer survivor Tom Renfro claims his recovery stemmed from the power of prayer. In India, at the site where the Buddha attained enlightenment, Morgan discovers that Buddhists believe all of us are capable of miracles, if we focus our minds.
