OUR LADY OF MERCEDE When Peter Nolasco (1180-1245), who devoted all his energy and economic resources to the redemption of the slave prisoners of Christian slaves, felt overwhelmed by the greatness of the task he had prefixed, he was closed in meditation; the night between August 1 and August 1218 saw a vision of the Blessed Virgin, from which he derived the inspiration of founding a religious order dedicated to the works of mercy and especially to the redemption of slaves, also at the cost of life , to save their bodies from the slaughter of servitude, but above their souls by the danger of forced conversion to Islam. Thus the Redeemer Religious Order was born, under the protection of the Virgin Mary, who was later appointed of Santa Maria della Mercede according to the words of King Alfonso X 'the Savio' (1221-1284): "Redeeming the slaves is the work of Great Mercy. "In the name of Our Lady of the Merced, or of Mercy, there have been many congregations and pious works also feminine throughout the world, mostly aimed at the salvation of souls through education and the protection of the poor girls or the redemption of prostitutes, and recently devoted to the contrast of the new forms of slavery of a political, social and psychological nature.
