St. Camillus

St. Camillus Feast Day:
Roman Rite Calendar - 07/14
Tridentine Calendar - 07/14


Patron Of: Hospital Workers, Hospitals, Nurses, Sick, Sickness

Profile
    Son of a military officer who had served both for Naples and France. His mother died when he was very young. Spent his youth as a soldier, fighting for the Venetians against the Turks, and then for Naples. Reported as a large individual, perhaps as tall as 6'6", and powerfully built, but suffered all his life from abscesses on his feet. A gambling addict, he lost so much he had to take a job working construction on a building belonging to the Capuchins; they converted him.

    He entered the Capuchin novitiate three times, but a nagging leg injury, received while fighting the Turks, each time forced him to give up. He went to Rome for medical treatment where Saint Philip Neri became his priest and confessor. He moved into San Giacomo Hospital for the incurable, and eventually became its administrator. Lacking education, he began to study with children when he was 32 years old. Priest. Founded the Congregation of the Servants of the Sick (the Camellians) who, naturally, care for the sick both in hospital and home. The order expanded with houses in several countries. Camillus honored the sick as living images of Christ, and hoped that the service he gave them did penance for his wayward youth. Reported to have the gifts of miraculous healing and prophecy.

Died
    14 July 1614 at Genoa, Italy

St. Gemma Galgani

St. Gemma Galgani Feast Day:
Roman Rite Calendar - 04/11
Tridentine Calendar - 04/11


Patron Of: Apothecaries, Druggists, Loss of Parents, Pharmacists, Temptation

Profile
    Daughter of a poor pharmacist; mother died when she was seven, her father when she was eighteen, and she took care of her seven brothers and sisters. Laywoman. Cured in her 20's of spinal tuberculosis by prayer to Saint Gabriel of Our Lady of Sorrows. Rejected by the orders to which she applied who would not believe her cure, she became a Passionist tertiary. Stigmatist, receiving the wounds on her hands and feet each Thursday evening through Friday afternoon starting in June 1899 and continuing into 1901. Visionary; she saw her guardian angel daily, and visits from the devil who tempted her to spit on the cross and break a rosary. Her canonization faced stiff opposition by those who either disbelieved or wished to avoid attention to her visions and stigmata.

Born
    12 March 1878 at Borgo Nuovo di Camigliano, Lucca, Tuscany, Italy

Died
    11 April 1903 (Holy Saturday) of tuberculosis

Beatified
    1933 by Pope Pius XI

Canonized
    2 May 1940 by Pope Pius XII
