Camillus was a very worldly man, a huge man at 6 foot 6 inches height, a soldier who fought against the Turks, and one who had a terrible addiction to gambling that continually reduced him to poverty and shame. He also suffered tremendously throughout his life from various ongoing ailments. After his conversion, though continually suffering himself, none of his own great sufferings kept him from always thinking of others first, and striving to serve the many sick and dying people under his care. Pope Leo XIII canonized him in 1746 and declared Camillus the Patron of the Sick.
This is a very "readable" and fast-moving book that will be enjoyed even by those who do not normally like to read. It will especially appeal to boys from grades 7-12. 190 pp. Soft cover.
