Book of Saints – John Camillus of Milan


(Saint) Bishop (January 10) (7th century) Surnamed “Bonus” (The Good). The Bishop of Milan first enabled to return to his Diocese from which for nearly eighty years the Lombard invaders had banished his predecessors. During his ten years of Episcopate he did much to efface the traces left of Ananism. His rule was in all respects firm and gentle. He passed away A.D. 655, and in death as in life has always been in exceeding honour at Milan. Saint Charles Borromeo (A.D. 1583) placed his relics in a stately shrine in the Cathedral.
