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

    St. Dymphna,

    Please pray to our Lord that my mind turn not to memories and perceptions of my failings and inadequacies, but, rather, that I turn my mind to the love of Jesus and that I hear our Lord's voice calling to me whenever I fall into negativity about myself and others. Thank you for the gift of the medications that treat my depression, Bi-Polar, ADHD, and OCD. Without them I would surely perish into a life of evil. St. Dymphna, pray for me. St. Dymphna, I love you.

    I'm a practicing Catholic and all I want to say is that ever since I get on my knees literally and pray the St. Dymphna novena prayers every day, being a person who has Bi-Polar disorder which is a mood disorder, I now feel more peace. I feel more mentally and physiologically balanced and healthy. Ever since I pray more and more devoutly to this great saint I just feel more almost as if I don't have that much of a daily fight with my symptoms of my illnes, my Bi-Polar disorder. Thank you Loving Saint Dymphna i feel your Bestowing relief.You are true. And please Pray to Jesus for more healing power on my friends, mother, my God son who has Autism, My Aunt and all the people in the world who don't have addwss to medicine, the poor. Love Joey

    Dearest Saint Dymphna, recently my Godson was diagnosed with a mental illness. He refuses to believe that anything is wrong and is refusing medication that could help. We need a miracle. Please pray for him and his family and for all those seeking your help. Thank You for you prayers!

    Dear St. Dymphna, I ask you to please help my beautiful daughter who is living in fear and anxiety. She cries each night because she is afraid that someone will hurt her. She is afraid that God will take her away from me and that she will never see me again. She fears for her Grandmother when she is not with her. I want this worry and this anxiety to stop. It is taking over her whole life and she deserves to enjoy it and to be happy - without worrying about things that are not in control. Please help her St. Dymphna. Please be with her and help her to trust in God. Please hear my prayers...

    Dear St Dymphna
    Please be with my grandson who suffers from several mental issues. Please give him the strength and guidance he needs at this time.

    Saint Dymphna, I ask for your divine intercession in this time of great worry for me. 6 weeks ago, I used a drug that gave me a very bad trip, and has since made me anxious at all times, depressed and have psychosis. I hadn't ever suffered from mental illness before, and do not know what's happening right now, or if I'm thinking straight. I ask your help to cope, as it is very difficult and I am finding it tough to want to get out of bed any day. I had always gone to mass in my life, but in the past year, I have let myself slip. I had always prayed every night before, but in the past year, I almost stopped entirely. Now, I am praying to our Lord for help and forgiveness, and I ask that you help me in these prayers. Amen.
