St Vincent Ferrer was born on the 23 January 1350 in Valencia (part of modern Spain). He was a great scholar and became Master of Theology — he knew the entire Bible by heart. Vincent was known for his great preaching throughout Europe. He is often called the “Angel of the Judgment.” A renowned wonder-worker, St. Vincent cured the sick, the blind and the lame. He died on the 5 April 1419 in Brittany, France. He was canonised in 1455 and is the patron saint of builders.
