Occasionally during his sermons, he fell into ecstasy and had to be carried from the pulpit. The fame of his sanctity was so great in South America, that, when he arrived, in a dying condition, at Potosi, the whole city came out to receive his blessing. On the day of his death at Potosi, 100,000 men in the silver mines stopped work to assist at his funeral. He is said to have had the gift of prophecy, and it is reported that after his death his body remained incorrupt.
