John Bradburne, a wandering English pilgrim, settled among a group of lepers in what is now Zimbabwe. The story of his life and as the strange events surrounding his death spread, more and more people started visiting Mutemwa, a site of pilgrimage. The man who dedicated much of his life to caring for people with a disease that evoked much prejudice could now become a Catholic saint.
