5 Saints who could bilocate

Here are five saints who, with the help of God, were given the gift of bilocation, being in two places at the same time.
St. Padre Pio (1887 - 1968)
Pio was seen across the world in his lifetime, including by a woman in the United States while he was in Italy.
St. Martin de Porres (1579 - 1639)
A poor lay brother in Peru, Porres was able to travel to France, China and Manila through bilocation.
St. John Bosco (1885 - 1888)
John Bosco was seen by one of his priests in Spain, while Bosco was living in Turin, Italy.
St. Anthony of Padua (1195 - 1231)
Anthony was able to be in two churches at the same time that were several miles away from each other.
St. Francis Xavier (1506 - 1552)
Xavier's missionary travels were aided by his gift of bilocation, preaching to natives in multiple places at the same time.
