Saint Camillus de Lellis was the most inspirational Saint!!!


Rome, Italy

#1 Nov 27, 2012
The inspirer of the Red Cross, by wearing a huge red cross on his robe.
Transformed from being a soldier and gambler to “Giant of Charity”.
De Lellis established the Order of Clerks Regular, Ministers to the Sick better known as the Camillians.
He spread the care of poor patients from his hometown of Bucchianico throughout the world.
In 1586 Pope Sixtus V gave the group formal recognition as a Congregation, and assigned them the beautiful Church of St. Mary Magdalene in Rome, which they still maintain, off Via della Maddalena near the Pantheon.
Camillus was beatified by Pope Benedict XIV in the year 1742, and canonized by him four years later in 1746.

Join Camillians world wide in celebrating the Fourth Centenary of the death of St. Camillus on July 14, 2014!
