His confreres admired his spirit of penitence, his love for Our Lady and his charity towards the sick for whom he selflessly gave of himself, being ready to make any sacrifice.
In September 1934, a month before his martyrdom, Inocencio was transferred to the convent of Mieres in Northern Spain, in the region of Asturias.
The following month the miners of this region initiated a revolution. On 4 October, Inocencio went to the school of the Brothers of the Christian Schools for ministry.
In the early morning of the following day, while celebrating Mass, he was arrested and imprisoned by the revolutionaries.
Along with him were also arrested eight religious of the Brothers of the Christian Schools.
They were condemned without trial, their only crime was that they were religious. They were executed on the night of 9 October.
Inocencio, together with the Brothers, were canonized on November 21, 1999 by Pope John Paul II.
