A hospital pastor risks his own health and life to counsel an injured dancer facing surgery. But the miracle is ultimately hers to perform.

Maria Genesis

A train wreck floods a hospital with cases. The staff tend to the injured and the Chaplain attends to their spiritual health. One of the patients is a ballet dancer who struggles with the choices she made in life between her career and her love interest, and now, must deal with the possibility she may never dance again. The chaplain himself sets aside his own health symptoms to perform his duty.


An okay listen, but with so much dramatic music I almost would've thought this was a soap opera. Overall a good listen for a dramatic story.


I thought this was a great show, I was totally drawn into it. I actually teared up at the end, hard for a radio show to do that to me.


I agree with both of the last two comments - a bit too much scene transition music this episode than seemed necessary (in my opinion) but besides that it was fantastic with the acting, especially the dancer. I love CBSRMT in general but occasionally there's an episode that I'm impressed with in such a way that I feel inclined to tell a friend and despite the music overdose, this is one of them.


Professional dancer Elizabeth Riggs is rushed to a hospital’s emergency room, her leg shattered in a train crash. Certain the leg will be amputated, she calls for the hospital chaplain, Daniel Morgan, who passes out while trying to console her. Drs. Patricia Shelton and Hugh Bradley see little hope for Morgan’s survival (he is suffering from a ruptured appendix) until Mr. Riggs asks to see him again and he consents, despite his precarious condition.


A very enjoyable and positive listen. I loved it! The cast is as always, excellent !
