Amanda "Amy" Wall and her family are finally telling their story: an unexplained cure of nerve deafness in both her ears that will finally turn Philadelphia's Blessed Katharine Drexel into a saint of the Roman Catholic Church. But Amy, a button-cute 7-year-old who'll make her first communion soon, was smilingly media-shy yesterday. She hugged and clung to and whispered with her mom, whose prayers and determination made it all happen. "Before, she was special," Constance Wall declared at Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament convent in Bensalem.

IN HONOR OF "We Love Rocky Week," I want to share a story about Rocky and St. John's Baptist Church. In February, our pastor, David Powles, notified our small congregation of outstanding utility bills totaling $5,000. Rev. Powles asked for prayers to find a solution to our dilemma. Lo and behold, less than a week later, our church was contacted by people involved in filming the new Rocky movie. They paid us $600 a day to rent our church kitchen. We know the Lord works in mysterious ways, but never did we expect him to send "Rocky Balboa" to our rescue.

Why would anyone try to graft new branches onto America's favorite evergreen? The new Miracle on 34th Street looks as if a plantsman has added plastic boughs to the live Norwegian spruce at Rockefeller Center. Whether they're about angels or Santas, successful holiday movies transform doubters into believers. This is the basis of the 1947 Miracle on 34th Street, a heartwarmer that did not need to be updated, but nonetheless has been. That the remake is more consumed with leveraged buyouts and courtroom strategy than with faith and hope says something about the difference between 1994 and 1947.

A tearful Dan Reeves left a hospital yesterday, four days after quadruple bypass surgery, and called his recovery a miracle. The Atlanta Falcons coach said he had tried to ignore symptoms of a recurring heart problem, "but thank goodness I got it checked out. " During Sunday's 27-17 victory over New Orleans, the pain grew worse, he said. Team physician Charles Harrison, who normally doesn't accompany the team on road trips, happened to be at the game. "For some reason, and I believe it's a miracle, I mentioned it to Dr. Harrison.

Miracles? Miracles here, there and everywhere. Popular discussions of miracles have recently appeared in Time and Newsweek, in newspapers and periodicals of all types, on TV and radio, and in movies such as the Philadelphia-based "The Sixth Sense. " A more significant local example is the case of Katharine Drexel. A Philadelphia heiress, nun and social worker who died in 1955, Mother Drexel is nearing the end of the long process whereby a person is canonized a saint. The process hinged upon the recent official certification of two posthumous miracles attributed to her. That Mother Drexel was an admirable, compassionate and selfless woman who divested herself of her considerable fortune and made the world a better place, I have no doubt.

James McSherry, president of the Roman Catholic High School alumni association, and Paul Pincituro, the vice president, waited anxiously in the lobby of the archdiocesan offices yesterday afternoon while the school's seven trustees discussed the school's fate. So when word came that Cardinal John Krol had given the school a second chance, the two, who had organized a lobbying campaign with other alumni against the closing, were overjoyed. "We believe in miracles!" Pincituro exclaimed.

THE SPECTRUM home of the Broad Street Bullies, Dr. J and many other great athletes - may become just a memory. If its demise comes to fruition, it will be a sad occasion for many concert-goers and sports fans in the city of Philadelphia. But say it ain't so - will Ed Snider and his band of merry men really build a state-of-the-art complex for the people of the Delaware Valley with no public funding from the city of Philadelphia or commonwealth of Pennsylvania? The nerve of some people not wanting my tax dollars so they can become richer!

The first hint of trouble came as soon as Isiah Thomas limped into the press conference supported by a pair of crutches. "Will you be able to play tomorrow night?" a writer asked anxiously. "At this point," Thomas said, "I seriously doubt it. It hurts. "I guess I'm looking for a miracle. " The miracle, of course, would be if Thomas were to play for the Detroit Pistons tonight against the Los Angeles Lakers in the seventh and deciding game of the NBA Championship Series.

Here comes Veda Zuponcic, a red blur streaking through the corridors of Glassboro State College, her blunt-cut blond hair fluttering in the tail wind. She sprints past the music rehearsal rooms, waving. She nimbly sidesteps a knot of students at the turnoff for the Wilson Auditorium. As she prepares to clear the lobby, she decelerates slightly, but only to grasp a pair of hands and smile. The owner of the hands opens her mouth to speak. Too late. Zuponcic has regained her speed.

An ancient, highly porous form of charcoal is being touted as a godsend for soil health and fertility - transforming farms, home gardens, and urban and suburban landscapes. It might even combat climate change. Any wonder they're calling biochar a "miracle product"? "It's important not to promise too much, but this is mind-popping stuff," says Dale Hendricks, owner of Green Light Plants, a wholesale organic nursery in Landenberg, Chester County, who talks up biochar to public gardens and local garden clubs, and cooks his own in barrels, kilns, and a wood stove.

FOR ONE NIGHT at least, Rob Zepp was the kid in net, facing an old guy with buckets and buckets of experience. "Thirty-three is the new 23," he would joke afterward, but in a game in which the NHL's best-scoring team was pummeled by one of its lesser ones, it wasn't nearly the funniest anecdote of the night. Zepp is, after all, only 33 and the guy on the other end of the ice, Evgeni Nabokov, the brick-wall netminder of San Jose's playoff runs for much of the last decade, is 39 years and 5 months old. Zepp was playing his second-ever NHL game after a lifetime of dreaming, and Nabokov was well past his 700th, and for every bit of the 22 minutes and 36 seconds he was out there, the "Russian Wall" was dropping bricks as if it was he who had come from Berlin, not Zepp.

The holiday season is a time when I want to impress friends and family with a special meal, but I don't want to miss all the fun and socializing and arrive at the table sweaty and exhausted. Since I want the meal to register a notch above a typical supper, I've learned it's best to plan a menu that can be prepared largely ahead of time, with a few quick trips to the kitchen during cocktail hour. Rich, indulgent ingredients like red meat, red wine, cream, and chocolate can make the simplest dishes taste extraordinary, and they're the perfect way to savor a celebratory meal during a cold, dark winter evening.

After a summer of hard work by volunteers from its congregation, assisted by one apparent miracle, Trinity Presbyterian Church in Cherry Hill is ready to celebrate its renovated sanctuary. Tired of the lackluster appearance of the worship space, and with a big milestone approaching - the 50th anniversary - church members decided this year it was time for a makeover. In June, with a slew of projects and limited funds, the volunteers gathered in the sanctuary with ladders, paint brushes, and power tools, and took on the laborious tasks themselves.

UNDER PRESSURE from Congress, TV physician Mehmet Oz yesterday offered to help "drain the swamp" of unscrupulous marketers using his name to peddle so-called miracle pills and cure-alls to millions of Americans desperate to lose weight. Oz appeared before the Senate's consumer-protection panel and was scolded by chairwoman Claire McCaskill , D-Mo., for claims he made about weight-loss aids on "The Dr. Oz Show. " Oz, a cardiothoracic surgeon, acknowledged that although he never endorsed specific companies or brands, he did, perhaps, gush a bit too much about green coffee and other supplements.

THERE WERE 32 team doctors at the NFL Scouting Combine in February, and every one of them examined Henry Josey's left knee. Thirty-two times, Josey hopped up on a table and offered up his scars from three surgeries. At an average of 10 minutes per exam, Josey would have spent 5 hours and 20 minutes being twisted and prodded, without allowing for downtime between appointments. It was a long day. "I came in, it felt like the place just shut down," Josey, a running back from Missouri, said yesterday at NovaCare, after finishing his organized team activity workout with the Eagles.

Shirley Temple Black, the child star and diplomat who died Monday night in Woodside, Calif., at age 85, probably achieved more during her first decade of life than any American in history. Her indefatigable optimism on screen buoyed a nation sinking in the Depression, and saved 20th Century Fox from bankruptcy. She was Hollywood's top draw from 1935 to 1938, winning unprecedented popularity that led to Shirley Temple dolls, bowls, mugs, dresses, books, and accessories that showed movie entrepreneurs the gold to be mined from ancillary products.

On a Tuesday evening not long ago, half a dozen parents hurried into the Arden Theatre Company's new building for Philly's latest premiere: a theatrical adaptation of the video game Minecraft .The play, created and performed by ebullient third and fourth graders, wasn't quite ready for the main stage. But the fact that it was performed at all was a remarkable accomplishment given the venue: the Arden's brand-new, $5.8 million Hamilton Family Arts Center. After all, the company bought the 22,000-square-foot industrial building, just up Second Street from its theater, in the depths of the recession.
