Religion: Catholic
Default Captives and Our Lady of Ransom

The Feast of Our Lady of Ransom is not celebrated in the U.S., but is a fantastic story. It was in a vision that Mary appeared individually to St. Peter Nolasco, St. Raymond, and King James I asking them to start a new religious order the Order of Our Lady of Mercy.



Their purpose was to liberate Christians from their Muslim captors, even giving themselves up as hostages if all else failed. Did the Mercedarian Order end when the last captive was released? Watch this two minute video to hear the rest of the story.
