April 27 – Saint Peter Armengol


Peter was born in 1238 to a noble Catalan family. He had a very adventurous youth, but after a dangerous and violent incident, he joined the Mercedarians to liberate all the captives. He was arrested, and hung from a tree but another missionary found him still alive. He continued his work rescuing Christians for another ten years. He died in 1304.
