"The new Saint Katharine Drexel..."

Mother Katharine Drexel, is now, SAINT KATHARINE. A wealthy Philadelphia heiress, she could have lived a life of privlidge. Instead she spent it helping the underprivledged.

Some 70 years BEFORE the civil rights movement, she was building schools to educate Native American and African American children - teaching tolerance in the face of threats from the Klan.

(LEE COWAN ON CAM:)


But its what the Vatican now believes Katharine Drexel did AFTER her death in 1955, that raised her to the level of Saint.

(SOT/ROBERT GUTHERMAN/PRAYED TO DREXEL)

"We knew THEN that it was a miracle."

(NARR:)


Robert Gutherman claims he can hear today - because of a prayer to Katherine Drexel - So can 8-year-old Amy Wall.
Both were deaf - both BELIEVE they were cured - and doctors cant explain either one.

(SOT/CONNIE WALL/AMYS MOTHER )

"It's just more than anyone could ever pray for."

Those two stories, and countless other rumors bring thousands to Mother Drexels shine outside Philadelphia.
People like Rebecca Hartman -- diagnosed with terminal lung cancer.
