Saint John Southworth:
During an interesting period in England's history, when everything had changed and times were difficult, an added epidemic allowed for good people like St. John Southworth to show their missionary spirit among the people of Westminster. His joyful, kindly character encouraged the people he met, as well as his friends, especially St. Henry Morse, with whom he travelled and worked. His deeply spiritual example in the Commonwealth establishment even drew the attention of Oliver Cromwell, the Lord Protector. Centuries later, the unexpected discovery of his tomb, hidden in France, allowed for Westminster's Saint to return home. His shrine draws prayerful visitors every day to Westminster Cathedral in London. Medieval bells, chimes, voices and a tangible bass viola da gamba transport you back to 17th Century England in this atmospheric film.
