St. Francis Mary of Camporossa

In an epidemic of cholera in August 1866 Francis Mary gave his help to the victims of the plague but soon contracted the disease himself and died not too long after. The Genoese people called him, and continue to call him, “Padre Santo” due to his holiness. His remains rest in a chapel at the Immaculate Conception convent.
