Our Holly Founders

THE DAUGHTERS OF ST. CAMILLUS

The Congregation of the Daughters of St. Camillus was founded on 2nd February 1982 in Rome, by Blessed Fr. Luigi Tezza, MI and Blessed Mother Josephine Vannini. It is an International Congregation having its Generalate in Grottaferrata, Rome – Italy. The Institute has been encouraged with reverse enlightenment by our Saintly Father Camillus de Lellis, the true patron of the sick.

THE SPIRITUAL HERITAGE OF A SAINT

ST. CAMILLUS DE LELLIS (1550 – 1614)ST. CAMILLUS DE LELLIS

St. Camillus was born in Bucchianico (Italy) in 1550. By a miracle of God’s grace, from being a rebellious, wayward youth and inveterate gambler, He was converted at the age of 25 and consecrated his life to the care of the sick and the reform of health care. He founded the religious order of the Ministers of the Sick (Camillians), in the year 1582 and instilled into his followers the practice of Religious perfection and heroic charity. The sick, so utterly neglected in those days, became his Supreme Master to be served and venerated as the suffering members of Christ’s body. He died on 14 July 1614 in Rome and he is the Patron of sick and those who nurse the sick.

THE BIRTH OF THE CONGREGATION
OF THE DAUGHTERS OF ST. CAMILLUS AND ITS FOUNDERS

It was the unfinished dream of St. Camillus to begin a female Congregation, because, in those days the Nuns were not allowed to go out for their Apostolic activities. And so, the members of the Camillian Order, who were brought up in the same spirit of St. Camillus, desired not to hold the Camillian Charism only for the male section but to expand it to the female section too.

The heroic charity of St. Camillus could not have gone unnoticed by many pious women who of their nature are more disposed to feel pity, to a life of dedication and sacrifice, and could not have failed to arouse in them a deep appreciation of this Saint’s outstanding virtue and a desire to imitate it. From the very first beginnings of the Order of the Sick, its history shows there were many good souls who cooperated with these religious, especially the so-called Camillian Tertiaries who continued their help until suppressed during the troublesome times of last century.

This desire was fully revealed through Fr. Luigi Tezza, after his election as the first Consulter General, which entitled him to the office of Procurator General of the Order, at the XXXVI General Chapter of the Order held in Rome on September 1889.
