The gravestone of the brother of Australia's only saint has been restored and blessed, after being discovered in a Christchurch cemetery about 20 years ago. It was long suspected that John MacKillop - brother of St Mary of the Cross, Mother Mary MacKillop - was buried in a graveyard somewhere in the city.
