Episode Guide »
Coping with the Pain of Bereavement - Correspondent Bob Faw speaks with a psychologist, a bishop and the grieving themselves about learning to live with the loss of a loved one. Ritual, trust, memory and time help comfort the mourning. India's Sacred Cows - Hindu traditions in India insist that cows are sacred. So, as Fred de Sam Lazaro reports, Indians still share their most modern cities with many thousands of cows they protect in the streets and take care of until they die. The Franciscans of the Holy Land - Franciscan monks look after Christianity's 54 holiest sites in the Middle East. Not only are they custodians, teachers and builders in the Holy Land - as correspondent Bill Baker reports - the Franciscans have also made exact replicas of the Middle East holy sites in Washington, D.C., where 2000 visitors a month come to visit.
