(Saint) (October 9) (16th century) Born at Valencia (A.D. 1526) and a blood relation of Saint Vincent Ferrer; like him, he took the habit of the Order of Saint Dominic. Like him too, he was animated with the spirit of an Apostle and fired with the zeal of a reformer. His life was spent in preaching in Spain and in South America. For seven years he successfully evangelised the Indians in the Spanish Colonies in the New World. He is said to have baptised ten thousand of them in Panama and neighbouring provinces. He died at Valencia, October 9, A.D. 1581.
