Saint Raymond’s mother died during childbirth and he was delivered by C-section, thus the name Nonnatus (meaning not born). He was a well-educated noble, called to the priesthood and entered the Mercedarians (who ransomed slaves) under St. Peter Nolasco. On a mission to Algeria, ransoming slaves, he ran out of money and offered himself for others and was imprisoned. While in prison, he converted Muslims, angering his captors, who then bored a hole through his lips and attached a padlock to keep him from preaching. Eventually, Raymond was ransomed and returned to Spain, where he died.
