Saint Peter of Alcantara was a Spanish Franciscan friar of noble birth. He was friends of many 16th century saints including St Teresa of Avila who he was her confessor. Peter was a priest, mystic, writer, preacher, and provincial of the Observant Franciscans. He worked towards church reform, starting with himself, practicing severe penances and patience. At times he only ate once in 3 days and sleeping 90 min. a night. He started the Alcantarine reforms, which followed a stricter order of the rule of St. Francis. He died while praying on his knees.
