In 1849 founded the congregation Claretians. Shortly afterward he was appointed archbishop of Santiago in Cuba. He stayed until 1857, when he returned to Spain and became confessor to Queen Isabella II. He was also into publishing books and pamphlets.

In the revolution of 1868 both Anthony and the queen were exiled. After attending Vatican I, Anthony sought refuge at a Cistercian monastery in France, where he died in 1870. He was canonized in 1950.
