    ST ANTHONY IS ASKED MANY FAVOURS BY CHRISTIANS AROUND THE WORLD -- MOST OF THEM SEEKING ASSISTANCE TO FINE SOME LOST ITEM OF PERSONAL IMPORTANCE.

    BUT IN MADRID THE LOCAL MAIDENS ASK A LOT MORE OF THE GOOD ANTHONY -- THEY PRAY, IN FACT, THAT HE WILL FIND THEM A HUSBAND.

    ITS AN ANNUAL FIESTA PECULIAR TO MADRID, AT WHICH THE REQUESTS ARE MADE. DURING THE TWO DAY FIESTA SOME 3,000 GIRLS IN SEARCH OF A HUSBAND DIRECT THEIR PRAYERS AND INTENTION TO ST ANTHONY AT A CHURCH DEDICATED TO HIM.

    ITS A TRADITION DATING BACK TWO CENTURIES.
