(Saint) (May 17) (16th century) A Spanish Saint, born of poor parents, who became a lay-brother among the Reformed Franciscans. His life of humility, penance and prayer was such as to attract the veneration of all who knew him even during his lifetime, and after his holy death (A.D. 1592) many miracles attested his sanctity. His singular devotion to the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar has singled him out as the Saint of the Eucharist. He was canonised A.D. 1690.
