In 1550, Camillus de Lellis was born in Italy. As a young boy, he often got into trouble. After his parents died, Camillus decided to change the foolish life he was leading. He wanted to become a soldier, but the army would not accept him. Camillus then started to work in a hospital.
There, he realized that hospital workers needed to be motivated by charity. Later, Camillus became a priest and founded an Order. Symbolized by a red cross on the cassock, it was called the Company of the Servants of the Sick. Reading this story can encourage us to follow in the footsteps of St. Camillus, who saw each person as a child of God and card for their needs.
