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.

    Dear St Dymphna i lost my independence 26 years ago due to a dreadful panic attack from which i have never really recovered. It has left my suffering from bouts of recurring depression and terrible anxiety. My life changed when i met a lady through a befriending service we became very close friends. The bottom has again dropped out of my world when on march 10th she committed suicide. At the moment i can see no hope of happiness please i pray to you you help the light come into my life again.

    St. Dymphna, I am desperate for a complete healing. My concentration and memory are almost gone and I live each moment of each day in anguish, as I have for a very long time. Please intercede for me to the Lord for a complete healing as I have lost all other hope of recovery except through God's healing grace and the intercession of the Saints. Thank you so much St. Dymphna

    Dear St Dymphna... please watch over and bless my 46 yr old brother... his behavior has been changing over the last month and is now hospitalized with rapid speech, delusions, paranoia and more. This is so unexpected and heartbreaking for all of us especially his two children and wife. Please help us learn what we need to so we can be his best advocates, guide us on the best way to communicate with him and help him through this difficult time, bestow on us strength as you showed during your difficult life, and bless Chris with your mercy and summon God's mercy on Chris' behalf to aid in a smooth and rapid arrival at a healthy state of mind. Amen.

    Dearest and most holy Saint Dymphna, I pray for your intercession, coupled with that of the Immaculate Heart of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary, for the urgent healing of my friend Donna in North Carolina. She is battling Parkinson's disease and has recently developed paranoia, depression and gross mistrust of her beautiful and loving husband. She is creating a prison for them both and is delusional. I offer her suffering up for the salvation of souls and plead that you take pity on her and bring many prays to our Lord for her release of this torture. Saint Dymphna, my new friend, please hear my prayer and divinely intercede, in Jesus' name, Amen. Dana
