April 29th is the Feast Day of St Peter Martyr, also known as St Peter of Verona (1205-52).
St Peter Martyr, a Dominican friar, was killed by an assassin on April 29th 1252. Less than a year later, on March 9th 1253, he was canonised by Pope Innocent IV (r. 1243-54), making it the quickest canonisation in history.
