Camillus de Lellis
Patron of the sick, hospitals &health professionals.
May 25, 1550-July 14, 1614
Throughout his life St Camillus de Lellis dealt with a wound on his leg that would not heal. Originally seeking to be a Franciscan Friar he was rejected because of his wound and began volunteering in a hospital where he could get medical treatment in exchange. His personal trials and tribulations with his medical condition led him to dedicate his life to the sick and to organizing hospitals. He founded the Order of the Camillians, priests and brothers who work in the area of health. He considered the sick to be Jesus Himself. “
Think well. Speak well. Do well. These three things, through the mercy of God, will make a man go to Heaven.”
July 22 - Saint Mary Magdalene
- Patron of Penitents and perfumers
Except for the mother of Jesus, few women are more honored in the Bible than Mary Magdalene. Yet she could well be the patron of the slandered, since there has been a persistent legend in the Church that she is the unnamed sinful woman who anointed the feet of Jesus in Luke 7:36-50. Most Scripture scholars today point out that there is no scriptural basis for confusing the two women. Mary Magdalene, that is, “of Magdala,” was the one from whom Christ cast out “seven demons” (Luke 8:2)—an indication, at the worst, of extreme demonic possession or, possibly, severe illness.
Matthew, Mark, and John record that Mary of Magdala was present at the crucifixion of Jesus and that she was among the women who visited the tomb on Easter morning. According to John, Mary was specially privileged to see and speak to the risen Lord on Easter morning. She thought he was the gardener until he said her name. Mary Magdalene was near Jesus in his darkest hour and again in his most glorious hour. Moreover, she was an outstanding disciple of Jesus. Because Mary Magdalene was the one who brought the news of Jesus' resurrection to the apostles, she is called the Apostle to the Apostles. For centuries St. Mary Magdalene has been considered a model of complete generosity and of sincere sorrow for sin.
