A farmer from Bavaria, Conrad did not become a Capuchin monk until he was in his early thirties. For the next forty years, he was the porter for the shrine of Our Lady of Altotting. He received thousands of pilgrims with charity and kindness, devoting much of his time to teaching local children. It is said he had the gift of prophecy and the ability to read hearts.
