Jose Fidencio Constantino

Twice a year, pilgrims come from all across northern Mexico and the southwestern United States to a Mexican village to play homage to a faith healer named Jose Fidencio Constantino. In the years since his death in 1938, he has risen to the level of folk saint. NPR's John Burnett attended the biannual fiesta in Espinazo last month.
