Ordinary Time

For a large part of the liturgical year, we devote ourselves to listening to the mystery of Christ in all its aspects unfolded as we seek God's truth and understanding.

Saint of the Week

Sixteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Camillus de Lellis, Soldier and Priest

Camillus was born into a wealthy family, and when he was old enough, joined the army. He was addicted to gambling, and behaved badly toward others. But while in the military, he became very ill and was admitted to a hospital. Because of this illness, he came to have great faith, and spent his life caring for the sick and suffering in his home town. He eventually became a priest and invited others to follow him. He had painful sores and illnesses throughout his lifetime, but remained faithful.
