Acupuncture may have saved Harry. Severe back problems led to partial paralysis for the 11-year-old black Labrador retriever who was named after Harry Potter. After a back operation, Harry was still in immense pain and couldn't move his back legs. His owner, Margaret Thompson of Charles Village , immediately thought of acupuncture. "I'm an acupuncture person. I have done acupuncture myself," says Thompson. "I read how acupuncture in animals produces dramatic results. " So she contacted Fred Wolfson, owner of Acupuncture for All in Mount Washington, who generally treats humans but also works on animals.

BOSTON -- In this proper town of tradition, where churche meet the future by clinging to the past, a tiny band of Christian Scientists is pursuing a bold and costly vision. Jettisoning the old ways, church leaders are spending millions to build up a worldwide radio and television venture that will tackle global issues in secular terms.Proponents say they are developing innovative strategies to set the spiritual agenda of the next century. But critics contend that church leaders are selling out the Christian Science birthright -- the disciplined practice of spiritual healing -- for secular success.

Vivian Haughee draped the bright green prayer shawl over her shoulders and wrapped it around her body. Then she clutched her arms together over the shawl in a warm embrace. Whatever healing powers the knitted garment possessed, they weren't about to escape. "My heart is so full, I feel like crying, not tears of sorrow but tears of joy," said Haughee, 64, after receiving the prayer shawl in her room at Carroll Hospital Center, where she was being treated for fibromyalgia. She was among the first recipients of the hospital's prayer shawl ministry, which was launched by its spiritual care and volunteer services departments in February to offer holistic care.

Spiritual healing: no threatOne can't help but feel the passionate concern behind ethicist Arthur Caplan's declaration, "No child should die from the measles" (Other Voices, April 3). If only saying it could make it so! Unfortunately, his arguments against tolerance of those who have religious scruples about immunization were more reactive than reasoned.The spread of measles is of concern to all. Only a small fraction of cases, however and only a small percentage of measles deaths have involved young people not immunized for religious reasons.

SIX YOUNG CHILDREN have died during the past month in Philadelphia from complications due to measles. Two years ago five infants died in South Dakota as a result of meningitis and other infections. During the same period other kids died in California, Minnesota, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Indiana and other states from diabetes, dehydration and bowel obstructions. Every one of these deaths could have been prevented.The parents of all these children chose not to prevent them. They chose instead to follow their religious beliefs and to rely on prayer, anointing with oil, exorcism or spiritual healing to cure their children.

Here's an imponderable: The largest effort so far to measure the power of distant prayer to heal the sick found it didn't help - and in one curious respect, prayer was associated with poorer outcomes, researchers said yesterday. Doctors who followed 1,800 heart bypass patients at six medical centers found that those who knew they were being prayed for had higher rates of complications than those who weren't sure. Cautioning that they don't know what, if anything, to make of the finding, some doctors speculated that telling patients on the eve of surgery that people were praying for them might not be a good idea.

Television news just ended a remarkable week in which it assumed a civic and psychic role that went beyond merely covering the aftermath of terrorist attacks. It was a week that resonated all the way back to 1963, when the medium first ascended to an elevated cultural realm of serving as a force of continuity and reassurance following the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Friday, it played the role of an electronic house of worship to which we could all go and vicariously participate in the rites and rituals of a multi-denominational national religion.
