detail of an antique Italian holy card of Blessed Natalia of Toulouse by Bertoni, date unknown; swiped from Santi e BeatiMemorial


Moved to Toulouse, France at age 16 to obtain an education. Joined the Mercedarians in Toulouse, received into the Order by Blessed Bernardo of Poncelli. While she could not make the trips into Muslim occupied territory to ransom Christians held as slaves, she became known for her zealous prayer life for the slaves to keep their faith, to be released, and for the work of the Mercedarians who journeyed to free the slaves. Received a vision of Christ encouraging her in this ministry.
