He was a Dominican lay brother who came from Spain and lived a humble life as a doorkeeper in a priory in Lima, in Peru. He was one of the great apostles of the souls in purgatory, and was sixty years old when he died. His special patron was Saint John the Evangelist who often appeared to him and miraculously transported him from place to place in his travels. He was a dear friend of another Dominican lay brother who lived at the same time and in a neighboring Dominican priory in Lima, Saint Martin de Porres, whose feast day is November 3 and who died in 1639.

Saint Boniface and all his companions were martyred there by the pagans. Saint Boniface was killed while he was putting on his vestments to say Mass.” https://t.co/XSUO0cvAMq59 mins ago 0 3
