San Camillo de Lellis

San Camillo De Lellis, born in Bucchianico on 25 May 1550 and died in Rome on 14 July 1614, was an Italian priest and founder of the congregation of the Ministers of the Sick.

Pope Benedict XIV made him a saint in 1746, claiming that he had been the initiator of a new school of charity.


By Leo XIV he was instead proclaimed patron of hospitals and the sick, while Pius XI declared him patron of nurses and Paul VI in turn appointed him patron of Italian military health.

Camillo's spirituality was based on mercy towards the suffering and the most needy, for this reason his only purpose was to serve the crucified Christ in them, recognizing them as his lords and masters and inviting his followers to do the same, identifying in them the person of the Lord himself.

Camillo considered the image of the mother as the human figure worthy of the greatest dedication, for this reason he proposed to serve the sick in the same way that a loving mother would serve her children.
