    Sacred Journeys with Bruce Feiler [#101H] Lourdes Host Bruce Feiler embeds with a group of active duty and retired US military, wounded in Afghanistan, Iraq and other American wars, as they travel to the Catholic shrine of Lourdes in southwest France in search of healing. More than 5 million pilgrims visit this shrine to the Virgin Mary every year to bathe in the waters of a spring that Catholics believe has miraculous powers.
    The wounded warriors from America join 30,000 other military and their families from 35 different nations on an International Military Pilgrimage that's now in its 55th year. While only half the American soldiers are Catholic, all hope that Lourdes can provide spiritual and emotional healing beyond the treatment they've already received for their physical wounds and disabilities.

    Secrets of Selfridges Two words are synonymous with the department store Selfridges: luxury and London. However, Selfridges was the brain child of an American, Mr. Harry Gordon Selfridge, whose life is depicted in the PBS Masterpiece series "Mr. Selfridge." The real, flamboyant Mr. Selfridge revolutionized the way that Londoners shopped by introducing a new American retail model that made shopping less of a practical pursuit and more of a luxurious adventure.
    Keen to put the shopper's experience above all else it was Selfridge who coined the phrase "the customer is always right," an expression that has become the mantra of retail stores all over the world. Today, Selfridges remains as much of an attraction as it was when it opened in 1909, and Selfridge's dream of creating a sophisticated and adventurous shopping experience is enjoyed by people from every corner of the world, 362 days a year.

    Roadtrip Nation [#1105H] Connecting The Dots Halfway through the journey, we find the road-trippers in Washington D.C., where they interview Brittan Heller, a human rights attorney. Brittan explains her "connect-the-dots" approach to career-building, which starts off with knowing what you're passionate about and taking small steps grounded in conviction. This philosophy resonates with Ed, who realizes that every experience has the potential to shape him, regardless of whether he knows his final destination.
    Later, the road-trippers make their way to Philadelphia, where they interview Sal Donato, a racecar-building mechanic who owns his own shop. As a first-generation American, Sal exudes a hard-working, up-by-the-bootstraps mentality, which Olivia can relate to as the daughter of immigrants. Olivia leaves the interview feeling inspired by Sal's success story and the unquestionable joy he derives from his work.
    Later, after stopping to enjoy Philly Cheesesteaks, the team interviews Christine Borelli and Stacey Cruise, two women who revitalized a crime-ridden school by using compassion instead of punishment. Tele'jon is particularly moved by the school's transformation and leaves the conversation feeling fired up about creating institutional change in education.
