Heart of St. Camillus de Lellis in the Philippines February 11, 2019

The heart relic of St. Camillus de Lellis, patron saint of the sick, doctors, and nurses, is in the Philippines for a two-month visit.

In several places, queues of people have lined streets outside churches waiting to have a glimpse of the relic and offer their prayers.

St. Camillus was a priest confessor and a miracle worker who treated and cared for the sick.

He established the Ministers of the Sick known as the Camillians, a religious congregation.
