Saint Camillus' heart relic arrives in Cubao

Cubao, Quezon City - The heart relic of Saint Camillus de Lellis, the patron saint of the sick, nurses, and hospitals, has arrived in Immaculate Conception Cathedral Cubao around 8 a.m.

Last February 2, the relic arrived at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport from Rome and was transferred to Our Lady of La Paz Parish in Makati City. Its first visit in the country was in 2016.

The heart relic will be brought all over the country as it is scheduled to stay in some parishes and hospitals until March 31.

The public veneration in Cubao started early this morning after a holy mass and will last until 10 p.m. It will resume the next day at 5 a.m. before transferring it to St. Camillus Provincialate in Loyola Heights, Quezon City. (Kate Ann Ferrer/Cubao Media)
