Out of the Mercedarian convent in Montpellier were Blessed Alfonso de Meneses and Blessed Dionisio de Vilaregut. Together they rescued 316 people from the Moors in Játiva and Granada. These were pre-congregation saints, not sure what patronages are attributed to them, but I would think for the Year of Faith they would be good intercessors for those held captive by lack of faith.
Beati Alphonsus et Beaiti Dionysius ora pro nobis
