Blessed Anthony Neyrot

April 10

Anthony joined the Dominican order, but while on a voyage, he was captured by pirates and sold into slavery in a Muslim land. There, he
denied his Catholic faith to win his freedom and began to live as a Muslim, even taking a wife. But when the leader of the Dominicans appeared
to him in a dream, he repented, confessed his sins, then went to the king of the land and publicly proclaimed his Catholic faith, knowing that he would be executed for it.
