“...I felt that this was my destiny and was perfectly matched to my training,” he wrote. “I knew deep down that this was going to become a public health catastrophe.”

Dr. Anthony Fauci has become something of a celebrity in recent weeks. The cool, calm, and collected bedside manner he’s now known for is a product of his deeply held Catholic faith.

Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, went to the Jesuit-run Regis High School in New York City and the College of Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts, and eventually studied at Weill Cornell Medicine, the medical school of Cornell University, according to Aleteia.

In 2006, the 79-year-old doctor wrote that he believes he has “a personal responsibility to make a positive impact on society.”

Dr. Fauci is a practicing Catholic who was educated by the Jesuits—Pope Francis’s religious order.

Here’s a short reflection he wrote some years back on how his faith informs his work as a doctor.

“I’ve tried to accomplish this goal by choosing a life of public service,” he wrote. “I am a physician and a scientist confronting the challenge of infectious diseases. I consider my job a gift. It allows me to try and help alleviate the suffering of humankind.”

This coronavirus pandemic is not Fauci’s first rodeo. In fact, he’s served under six White House administrations and was a leader during the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the 1980s.

In his writings, the researcher said many of his colleagues felt he was “misguided” in his focus on what many at the time considered “just a gay man’s disease.”
