St Camillus Day: the Camillans

St Camillus started life as a soldier. When injured, a Capuchin brought him to the faith. He applied, but was not accepted by them. After going to a hospital for incurables, he noticed how poorly they were tended. He and some friends formed the Clerics Regular, Ministers to the Infirm. Their habit is distinguished by the large red Cross.

He’s one of my favorite saints. I learned all about him before I started nursing school (before I came back to the Church). I love his story.
