Who is Saint Ramon Nonato?
San Ramón Nonato, was born in the year 1204 in Portell, region of La Segarra, at the time, belonging to the diocese of Urgel and later to the diocese of Solsona, since 1593, a small population of the former Crown of Aragon in Spain.
He is known as Unborn or unborn, because his mother died before giving birth to him and it was necessary to perform a cesarean section to remove him from her body.
There are very few documents that allow us to determine if he really existed or if the information that is handled is true, however, the data that is available indicates that, with the permission of his father, while still very young, he entered the order of Mercedarians.
Los Mercedarios was founded by San Pedro Nolasco, with the aim of rescuing Catholics who were prisoners of Muslims in North Africa.
His progress was rapid and recognized by his order, in 1222 he was ordained as a priest and superior in some communities of the congregation.
When his time came, his virtue made him the successor of San Pedro Nolasco, taking the position of redeemer of captives, traveling to North Africa.
He was accompanied by his faith, courage and a considerable amount of money, which would allow him to free numerous slaves in Algiers.
When the money ran out, he gave himself up as a prisoner in exchange for the release of some captives who were in precarious and desperate conditions.
This attitude caused the annoyance of the powerful, who attacked him and mistreated him terribly.
However, the main magistrate of the place, thinking of a possible reward for him and other prisoners, ordered that they not be treated with such cruelty.
But once he was able to go out onto the street, San Ramón Nonato continued to help and comfort the Christian or non-Christian prisoners, and his work made many of them convert to Christianity, receiving baptism.
At that time preaching Christianity to Muslims was punishable by death and such audacity again aroused the wrath of the authorities.
The governor, enraged, condemned him to be impaled, however, the economic interests of a certain group that expected the payment of the ransom by the religious avoided his sentence.
The punishment was to flog him on all the corners of the city, then they pierced his lips and put a padlock on him to prevent him from continuing to preach.
The key was under the power of the governor and was only given to the jailer to be fed.
It is not necessary to say that the situation was extremely distressing and painful, after eight months of this, San Pedro Nolasco was able to send members of the Mercedarians to rescue him.
In 1239 he returned to Spain, sad for leaving many prisoners in African lands.
Pope Gregory IX appointed him Cardinal, however, despite this honor he continued his usual work, without changing his clothes, nor his austere convent cell, much less his way of life.
The Pope requested his presence in Rome and on the way there, he contracted some illness that caused his death in August 1240, while still young.
