A relic of St. Anthony of Padua will visit Brooklyn

(The following paragraph is printed as received.)
"The Franciscan Friars invite you to join them in welcoming Saint Anthony of Padua on the occasion of the 750th Anniversary of the Discovery of Saint Anthony’s Relics by Saint Bonaventure. St Anthony will be visiting us in the form of a precious relic from his Basilica in Padua, Italy. The relic will be accompanied by one friar from the Messenger of St Anthony in Padua."

(The above seems to come from some Conventual Franciscans, who have charge of the Basilica in Padua and who have a friary in Elmhurst, Queens.  St. Anthony (1195-1231) was born in Lisbon, and  traveled to Madrid and Padua. An article in the National Catholic Register (linked here) describes more, but does not specify which relic will visit Brooklyn.  Presumably his tongue remains in its golden case in Padua.  St. Anthony was not a martyr.)
