San Antonio (Saint Antony) is seen as a founder of the ascetic desert fathers.

In Spain, the feastĀ of San Antonio (17 January) is the day when animals are brought to be blessed.

Outside the church of El Roser, in Es Castell, this year, the usual assortment of animals was presented for blessing and sprinkling with holy water by the Anglican Chaplain and Father Lorenzo, of the Roman Catholic parish of El Roser.
