The monks, filled with wonder at such an amount of holiness, named him higher of their convent.
After his death, he appeared in holy Therese, that he had helped all his life of his councils and his examples, and says to him: « O happy penitence which was worth me such an amount of glory. «
Holy Therese revealed that God could nothing refuse with that which would require graces by the intercession of Holy Pierre of Alcantara.

Lord Jesus-Christ, no pain can be compared with your pain. Ô my good Master, it’s not drop by drop, but with great floods which your blood ran of your body, and on all your members: of your hands and your feet in crucifixion; of your head in the crowning of spines; of all your body in scourging, and of your heart itself when it was bored of a lance.
