Giuseppe Moscati was an Italian doctor in the early 1900s.  He worked hard to get to know his patients personally and to bring them back to the sacraments as well as to physical health.  Often he would not accept payment from his poor patients, or he would slip their money back to them with their medicine so as not to embarrass them.  Dr. Moscati trained younger doctors to also be generous in caring for both the emotional and spiritual needs of their patients.
