Raymond Nonnatus

(c. 1204–40)
   Saint, Missionary and Cardinal.
   Little certain is known of the life of Raymond Nonnatus. His name means ‘not born’ and it is thought that his mother died in childbirth. He grew up in Portello, Catalonia, and he is said to have been admitted to the Mercedarian order by peter nolasco himself. He worked in North Africa, redeeming slaves and preaching the gospel and he was made a Cardinal by Pope Gregory IX in 1239. He is remembered as the patron saint of midwives.
