St. CAMILLO DE LELLIS (May 25, 1550 - July 14, 1614), an Italian religious and presbyter, founder of the Order of the Regular Chancers of the Sickness Ministers (Camillians). The second-born of a noble family, until adolescence, had a busy life, looking forward to a future as a savage soldier, subjected to uneasiness and harshness of craftsmanship. An ulcer on his feet stopped him in the hospital, but the times for him were not ripe, and when he was resigned he resumed his wicked life. When he was dismissed at age 25, having lost everything to the game, he asked reception at the Cappuccini di San Giovanni Rotondo as a maneuver, and with them his conversion took place. Returning to the hospital for the ever-healed ulcer, he saw everything with new eyes and found his vocation, devoting the existence to the care and spiritual and material comfort of the sick. The patron saint of the sick, nurses and hospitals, as well as the Abruzzo region, traditionally commemorated on July 17, the Roman Martiologio of 2001 fixed the liturgical memory on the 14th July, the day of death (Dies Natalis, birth to heaven). Colored Etching, Italy 1886
