 Our Description

(Raymond, Ramon, Ramundo) [1175-1275], is the patron of Canon Lawyers. He was a brilliant lawyer and teacher. At forty-seven, he decided to become a Dominican Friar, in part, to learn humility, which he lacked. Raymond feared no one. When the immoral King James ordered him to stay with him, Raymund is said to have taken his cape, laid it on the water and sailed back to Barcelona. He became General of the Dominican Order, Archbishop of Tarragona and confessor to the pope, who ordered him to gather into one work all scattered decrees of the popes and councils and all church laws. In three years he completed his Decretals in five books. His feast is January 7.

    7 January
    formerly 23 January

    Aragonian nobility. Educated at the cathedral school in Barcelona. Philosophy teacher around age 20. Priest. Graduated law school in Bologna, Italy. Joined the Dominicans in 1218. Summoned to Rome in 1230 by Pope Gregory IX. Assigned to collect all official letters of the popes since 1150. Raymond gathered and published five volumes, and helped write Church law.

    Master general of the Dominicans in 1238. Reviewed the Order's Rule, made sure everything was legally correct, then resigned his position in 1240 to dedicate himself to parish work. The pope wanted to make Raymond an archbishop, but he declined, instead returning to Spain and the parish work he loved. His compassion helped many people return to God through Reconciliation.

    During his years in Rome, Raymond heard of the difficulties missionaries faced trying to reach non-Christians of Northern Africa and Spain. Raymond started a school to teach the language and culture of the people to be evangelized. With Saint Thomas Aquinas, he wrote a booklet to explain the truths of faith in a way nonbelievers could understand. His great influence on Church law led to his patronage of lawyers.
