History of Saint Ramon Nonato
The story of San Ramón Nonato tells that he became a member of the religious order of the Mercedarios, founded by San Pedro Nolasco, whose main function was dedicated to the rescue of Catholic captives who had been imprisoned by the Moors in North Africa.
To carry out the noble work of the Mercedarians, it was necessary to have money to rescue the captives, however, it is said that on many occasions San Ramón went to the rescue of the prisoners without having sufficient financial means, relying only on the help of divine providence, even offering himself as a hostage for the freedom of some prisoners who were in extreme danger.
It should be noted that his selfless behavior greatly annoyed the infidels, who, in retaliation for his deep faith, subjected him to extremely cruel treatment, reaching the point where, in danger of death, the leader of the Muslims stopped those actions for fear that San Ramón would lose his life and would not be able to recover the amount of money represented by the prisoners he had released in exchange for keeping him in captivity.
When San Ramón managed to be released, he continued with his evangelist work, encouraging Christians to maintain their faith and managing to convert and baptize some Mohammedans. This angered the governor who ordered him to be killed and impaled. But, due to the economic interests that fell on San Ramón, in order not to lose the value of his ransom, his punishment was replaced by flogging.
In any case, he remained firm in his faith and maintained his charitable and sacrificial actions, which, with the passage of time, continued to be the reason for more torture against him. It is said that once the governor found out that he did not desist in sharing his faith and inspiring the conversion of others, he instructed that San Ramón be flogged in all the corners of the city and that his lips be pierced with a hot iron. I live to put a padlock on his mouth, whose key he kept himself and only gave to the jailer at mealtimes.
The martyrdom of San Ramón was quite torturous until, after eight months, San Pedro Nolasco was able to send some Mercedarians to negotiate his ransom, with the order that he return to Spain, which he complied with much regret, since he preferred to stay in Spain. Africa providing aid to slaves.
By 1239, he was made a cardinal by Gregory IX, however, that honor was totally ignored by Saint Ramon, maintaining his humble customs. Later, his presence before the Pope in Rome was requested, on the way and arriving in Cardona, in the vicinity of Barcelona, he was attacked with a strong fever that worsened to the point of death. He was barely thirty-six years old when he died on August 31, 1240.
