As a young man he felt a call to religious life, and joined the Mercedarians. He attracted so much attention as a miracle worker that for a while he lived a cloistered life at the El Puig monastery at Valencia, Spain. In north Africa he ransomed 108 Christians from Muslim slavery, but was imprisoned, chained and repeatedly flogged for refusing to renounce Christianity. Physically broken, he was released, returned to the El Puig convent, and spent his remaining years as a choir monk.
