“The Church is missionary, and evangelization is the task of the whole people of God. Our Order assumes its role and becomes involved with its special charism in the range of missionary activities, faithful to the Lord’s command to heal the sick and preach the Gospel.” (From the Constitution of the Ministers of the Sick, # 56).
Faithful to the charism and sensitive to the signs of the times, the Camillians are called to be witnesses and prophets of the merciful love of Christ and to what was written in the gospel of Matthew: “He continued his tour of all the towns and villages. He taught in their synagogues, he proclaimed the good news of God’s reign, and he cured every sickness and disease.” (Mt 9:35)
The Church has acknowledged the charism of mercy towards the sick in St. Camillus and his Order, and has indicated in the same charism to be the mission of every minister of the sick who, accepting the call to serve Christ, follows the teaching and example of his holy founder. (From the Decree of Approval of our Constitution)
