Relic of St. Camillus in the Philippines

MANILA (UCAN): The heart relic of St. Camillus de Lellis, patron of the sick, doctors, nurses, and health workers, is set to arrive in the Philippines on February 2 and remain in the country until the end of March.
 
Bishop Oscar Florencio, of the Episcopal Commission on Health Care of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines, called the visit a “grace from God.”
 
In October last year, thousands of Filipino Catholics welcomed the heart relic of St. Padre Pio of Pietrelcina.
