St. Camillus

Camillus was a strongly built man, reaching the height of six and a half feet. He became a successful sodier and spent his money gambling, losing even the shirt off his back. He decided to become a monk, but was denied the pleasure because of a leg injury. He then worked in a hospital and founded Servants of the Sick, a group of male nurses.
