St. Camillus de Lellis Comments

St. Camillus de Lellis was born at Bocchianico, Italy. He fought for the Venetians against the Turks, was addicted to gambling, and by 1574 was penniless in Naples. He became a Capuchin novice, but was unable to be professed because of a diseased leg he contracted while fighting the Turks. He devoted himself to caring for the sick, and became director of St. Giacomo Hospital in Rome. He received permission from his confessor (St. Philip Neri) to ... Continue Reading

    St. Camillus, I am a nurse, and I pray to you for inner strength and courage to continue to do the right thing, despite an outside force that is corrupt and only after profit. I was brought to a facility with your namesake as a calling, and I fear the current proprietors are not honest of heart. I pray to you to continue watching over those who truly care for those in need, and please allow the right thing to do to be stronger than mere temptations and greed. Thank you, amen.

    I would like to thank St Camillus for favors and blessings received especially for the reversal of impending death for a woman expected to die within days who is still with us almost one month later and who's health has stabilized. The prayer to St Camillus was found recently in my Father's wallet five years after he passed away from cancer. Praise Be Jesus Christ!

    I fournd a little white paper with
    LITTLE CROSS OF ST. CALLIMUS - Blessed for the sick on the front
    inside there is a small red felt cross
    inside the paper reads:
    This little cross has been blessed according to a formula approved by the
    Congregation of Rites. The sick person should fasten it to the scapular
    or on the inside of the garment, while trustingly invoking Saint Camillus,
    the patron of the sick.
    Don't remember where I got it but have been keeping it in my purse.
    Last Friday, I lost my hearing in my right ear. I ask St. Camillus to pray
    for me to help restore my hearing. I am very honored to have this
    cross to remind me how great our Father is and hope it is not selfish
    to pray for myself before others at this time. God bless

    I went to a healing service and was told that I need to pray to St. Camillus. Truly a blessed saint. I work at a hospital and pray for many there, so I guess that is the connection. I am praying for my husband as he is deaf and cannot hardly hear the God's words spoken at Mass. Please pray for Sonya and David, who are both fighting addictions. Please intercede for me for all the newly diagnosed cancer patients at the hospital. May they find peace and healing of their heart, soul, mind and body. Praise, Glory, Honor and Thanksgiving for your prayers.

    St. Camillus is indeed a very powerful saint , he is the patron saint of nurses in in Rome particular as he was a nurse at San Giacoma Hospital in Rome, Italy!! His church in Rome is the Maddalena and his little apartment is next to the church, well worth the visit in Rome!!!
