DeLillisToday is the Feast of Saint Camillus de Lellis (1550-1614), spiritual son of Saint Philip Neri, who under his guidance founded a new order in the Church, the Camillans, who are dedicated to the care of the sick. He had the charism of honoring the sick as living images of Christ. This captures our Christian life in a clear way.

Please keep the sons of Camillus in prayer who recently elected a new general superior.

Pope Leo XIII made Saint Camillus, with Saint John of God, a patron of the sick.
