St. Camillus de Lellis

Today, on the Church’s universal calendar, is the Feast of St. Camillus de Lellis. In the United States, it is transferred to Friday this year, as we celebrate St. Kateri Tekakwitha today.

Here is a photo that I took of his “tomb” (the effigy contains his mortal remains) in Rome:

His tomb is located in the beautiful church of St. Mary Magdalene, a church you would like to visit (see here for more).

Read about St. Camillus’ very intersting life on EWTN’s site: how he had been a lazy and unattractive child, who had a bad temper, and lived in a difficult family situation, but in any case, grew up to become a saint.

St. Camillus de Lellis, pray for us.
