Heart of St. Camillus travels to Ireland
July 13, 2010
The heart of St. Camillus de Lellis, patron saint of the sick, was brought from Rome to Ireland on July 9 for the veneration of the faithful. The relic will be venerated in Westmeath, Dublin, and Knock this month in commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the arrival of the Order of St. Camillus in Ireland.
The saint’s liturgical memorial is celebrated on July 14 on the General Roman Calendar and on July 18 in American dioceses, where Bl. Kateri Tekakwitha is honored on July 14.
