Saint Camillus/Camillo de Lellis (1550-1614).

Italian Catholic saint, memorial is July 14, or July 18 in the USA.

His mother died when he was very young. Spent his youth as a soldier. Supposedly he was a very tall man, 6'6", but he had abscesses on his feet. Was a gambling addict, so he had to take a job as a construction worker, working for the Capuchins, and they converted him. He entered the Capuchin novitiate 3 times, but nagging war injuries kept forcing him to give it up. He went to Rome for medical treatment and there St. Philip Neri became his priest and confessor. Lacking any education, he began to study with children when he was 32 years old. Eventually he became a priest and founded an order, the Congregation of the Servants of the Sick.

Think well. Speak well. Do well. These three things, through the mercy of God, will make a man go to Heaven.  Saint Camillus de Lellis
