I got the title of this thread from a review of a book on St Vincent Ferrer.
Based on some of the miracles that St Vincent Ferrer performed as well as the thousands of souls that were saved because of his preaching, I too am surprised that there is not a lot said about him. Well at least as compared to some of the great Saints like St Francis of Assisi, St Dominic, St Teresa, etc.
According to Tradition, St Vincent claimed to be the Angel of Judgment in Revelation 14:6-7.
6And I saw another angel flying through the midst of heaven, having the eternal gospel, to preach unto them that sit upon the earth, and over every nation, and tribe, and tongue, and people:
7Saying with a loud voice: Fear the Lord, and give him honour, because the hour of his judgment is come; and adore ye him, that made heaven and earth, the sea, and the fountains of waters.
And he performed a miracle which apparently confirmed it.
At Salamanca he raised a woman to life, to prove to his auditory that he was himself the angel precursor of the judgment, announced in the Apocalypse. This miracle is related in detail in the “Spiritual Instruction,” for the fifth Friday before the Saint’s Feast.
And she was not apparently the only person he raised from the dead.
So why is he not discussed more?
