Consecrated bishop of Puebla de los Ángeles, Mexico, on December 27, 1639; also served briefly as Archbishop of Mexico (1642-1643).

In Puebla he founded the convent of Santa Inés and several schools, and completed the cathedral. He was an administrative reformer who came into conflict with the Jesuits, with whom he was involved in litigation from 1647 to 1655. Palafox y Mendoza returned to Spain in 1649 and was named bishop of Osma in 1655. He died in 1659 and was beatified on September 12, 1767.
