EUROPE/ITALY - "To love sick brothers and sisters with the love of a mother for her sick child", celebrations in honor of St. Camillus de Lellis

Tuesday, 16 July 2013

Bucchianico (Agenzia Fides) - The 400th Jubilee Year of the death of St. Camillus de Lellis has just been inaugurated. Among the most striking initiatives celebrated on 14 July is that of two daring "pilgrims" who walked from the Hell Valley, just outside of San Giovanni Rotondo, where everything began with the conversion of the Saint on February 2, 1575, in Bucchianico, where he was born on May 25, 1550. We are talking about camillian friar Luca Perletti, already Consultant General and Maurizio Di Labio who was brought up in the District of Farciola, close to the birthplace of the Saint. The two have come to pay their respects to the Saint. (AP) (Agenzia Fides 16/07/2013)
