Many know him as Saint Anthony of Padua, but actually he was born in Lisbon around 1190. Fernando Martins de Bulhões – Saint Anthony – was a Franciscan friar canonized by the Catholic Church in record time, one year after his death, and declared Doctor of the Church. He died in Padua in 1231 and many miracles have been attributed to him. He is considered a protector of the souls of Purgatory, guardian of good marriages, defender of animals, healer, and advocate of lost objects. The 13th of June sees the celebration of his death and is also the day of the city of Lisbon, despite Saint Vincent being the patron saint of the capital.
