Rebuschini, Enrico, Bl.


Mystic, priest of the Order of Clerics Regular, Servants of the Sick (camillians); b. Apr. 28, 1860, Gravedona on Lake Como, Piedmont, Italy; d. May 10, 1938, Cremona, Lombardy, Italy. Although Enrico was born into a wealthy family, he was always sensitive to the needs of the poor. When his father opposed his priestly vocation, Enrico submitted. He enrolled at the University of Pavia, but found its anticlerical atmosphere intolerable. Remaining docile to his father's wishes, Enrico entered military service, studied accounting, then joined his brother-in-law's silk factory for two years. No longer able to dismiss his vocation, he attended the Pontifical Gregorian University at Rome until he fell gravely ill. Upon his recovery, he engaged in rigorous asceticism in order to give himself totally to God. He entered the Camillians, Servants of the Sick, at Verona (1887) and was ordained (1889) by the future Pope Saint pius x. He was the hospital chaplain at Verona (189199), then assigned to that position in Cremona. He administered the new clinic at Cremona (190337), and, for the last 11 years of his life, he was superior of the community. Pope John Paul II, who beatified Rebuschini on May 4, 1997, noted his "extraordinary love for the Eucharist and constant devotion to the sick and suffering" (beatification homily).

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
