The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey

Why have the people in town ignored Mr. Toomey rather than trying to get to know him? What does Susan McDowell do differently? Why can it sometimes take time to warm up to a person?

Why does Thomas say he has nothing to pray about? What makes him change his attitude?

This movie is based a children’s story by Susan Wojciechowski, and illustrated by P. J. Lynch.
