St. Giuseppe Moscati - A Tiber River Review

St. Giuseppe Moscati - Doctor to the Poor

St. Giuseppe Moscati - Doctor to the Poor

St. Giuseppe Moscati was an Italian doctor in Naples.  He came from an aristocratic family, but after finishing medical school was struck by the poor and suffering he saw in the hospital he worked in.  Despite hospital regulations, he spent more time with those patients who truly needed him than he was supposed to.  Not only did he annoy his superiors, he learned a unique lesson in charity.

After several heartbreaking incidents, he truly learns to see Christ in each of his patients and treats each patient accordingly, no regardless of poverty or social "distastefulness".  There is a bit of a love story intermingled throug hout the movie, which serves to show how truly human St. Giuseppe was.
