St. Dymphna Comments

Dymphna was fourteen when her mother died. Damon is said to have been afflicted with a mental illness, brought on by his grief. He sent messengers throughout his town and other lands to find some woman of noble birth, resembling his wife, who would be willing to marry him. When none could be found, his evil advisers told him to marry his own daughter. Dymphna fled from her castle together with St. Gerebran, her confessor and two other friends. ... Continue Reading

    Dear Saint Dymphna,

    My daughter suffers from a mood disorder, and a severe anxiety and a fear of people trying to harm her. However unfounded these fears seem to us they are very real for her. Please bring her a calmness and peace that will truly make her believe that she has nothing to fear because our God is watching over her. Please cause her mind to release these fears, to let go and let God so that she may live a more peaceful, productive and happy life and raise her child to grow up trusting in the Lord.

    This prayer I send to you for your intercession and blessings upon my daughter.

    Dr. St. Dymphna,
    My husband was recently diagnosed with Bi Polar disorder. I married him a year and a half ago and we are now a family of five. I have 3 little girls from a previous relationship. He struggles on a daily basis just to be normal and to stay calm in stressful situations. He has episodes of uncontrollable rage and at times thinks he is posessed by a demonic entity. Our family needs your prayer upon us. Please heal his mind and help us to work through this dear Saint. He needs a blessing now more than ever.
    In Jesus' name I pray :Amen
