Murillo's St John of God
"(St John) requested those round his bed to leave him alone for a few minutes;
he had lived his life alone, he would die alone. When they were gone he rose
from his bed and knelt before a crucifix. The nurses entered shortly after
and found him still kneeling there, his face resting on the feet of the Savior,
but he was quite dead. His body remained kneeling till it was taken up
to be laid out for burial. It was the eighth of March, 1550, a little
after midnight. At the time of his death John was fifty-five years of age."
