On Heroic Confidence

The Heavenly Father created the whole universe with one single word; can it be difficult for Him to assist His sons in their hour of need? Saint Camillus of Lellis went into debt in order to help the sick poor. Seeing this, his fellow religious became alarmed. "Why doubt Providence?" the Saint quieted them. "Can it be difficult for Our Lord to give us a little of those goods that He heaps upon the Jews and the Turks, enemies one and the other of our Faith?" The confidence of Camillus was not disappointed; one month later, one of his protectors, upon dying, left him a considerable sum.
