Episode #1733
Previously aired Sunday April 20th
Atrocities in Myanmar - At one level, the former nation of Burma is moving slowly toward a free society. At the same time, as Lucky Severson reports, there is continuing mob persecution of Myanmar's minority Rohingya Muslims, just two-and-a-half percent of the country's 60 million people. And those committing what one observer calls "incredible brutality" are Buddhists, despite their teachings' non-violence. Jesus and Resurrection - Jesus: A Pilgrimage, the new book by prominent Roman Catholic priest Rev. James Martin, S.J. has been on the New York Times bestsellers' list for the past month. The book attempts to combine historical and theological perspectives about Jesus with Martin's own spiritual insights. With the world's more than two billion Christians celebrating Easter, Kim Lawton talks to Martin about why he believes the resurrection is central to their faith.

Previously aired Sunday April 13th
Severely Impaired Premature Babies - Technology has allowed premature and critically ill newborn babies to survive, but sometimes with major problems. Dr. John Lantos, Ethicist at Children's Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, says, "The big question today is, of the survivors, how many survive without devastating neurologic impairments or other chronic medical problems." Betty Rollin speaks with physicians, families and a chaplain at Children's Mercy's Intensive Care unit about wrestling with issues of life and death. The Sarajevo Haggadah - Beginning sundown April 14th, Jews will be observing Passover with the Seder, the special meal which commemorates their ancestors' exodus from slavery in Egypt. The book that guides the ritual is the Haggadah. Kim Lawton reports on one of the most famous Haggadahs in the world, the Sarajevo Haggadah, named for the Bosnian city where it is now kept. The rare, beautifully illuminated manuscript was created more than 600 years ago in Spain, and many see its story as a compelling symbol of the Exodus.

Episode #1731
Previously aired Sunday April 6th
New Calvinism - In many Southern Baptist churches there is a revival of interest in Calvinism, the strict theology of the 16th century reformer John Calvin, whose beliefs had great influence on colonial America. Gradually, since then, Calvinism's emphasis on sin and pre-destination gave way to other beliefs, but now, as Bob Faw reports, Calvinism's absolute certainty is attracting new followers, especially among young people. Biblical Epics - 2014 has been called Hollywood's year of Biblical epics. From Son of God to Noah and others to come, top film makers are tackling Bible stories. Many are already reaping box office rewards. But what are the potential pitfalls? Kim Lawton went to Los Angeles to talk with Noah director Darren Aronofsky, Son of God producer Mark Burnett, film actors and analysts about the challenges of adopting sacred stories for the big screen.

Blind Boys of Alabama - For 70 years, the Blind Boys of Alabama have been singing gospel music to inspire their audiences both with their music and their faith. Over the decades, the Blind Boys, still with some original members, have won five Grammys and been specially welcomed by the disabled. One of the members, Ricky McKinnie, says, "It's not about what you can't do. It's about what you do." Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land - Every Good Friday, in every Catholic parish in the country, a special collection is taken up for the Franciscans of the Holy Land. Correspondent Bill Baker reports that ever since the 14th Century the Franciscans have been assigned the task of caring for the holiest sites of Christianity, in and around Israel - 54 shrines and sanctuaries. The Franciscans have also created a monastery in Washington, DC where tourists can visit exact replicas of the most revered Holy Land sites.
