He was cook, sacristan and gardener in almost all our communities. He did much to advertised our bulletin “Ecos Estigmatinos”.  He lived a retired life, but took part in all community acts. He was a good religious and much devoted to Our Lady.

He was good in instructing the boys who would come to help him in the garden. One of them gave him the tribute of having acquired first from him all the knowledge he received in the subsequent years of his secondary school.

In 1982 he suffered a cerebral haemorrhage that weakened him for good. He declared: “I cannot work any longer but I am sure that, by living in the grace of God, I am still useful to my Congregation and to all those I meet.”
