Description
 


St. Dymphna has gained great popularity as the patroness of those who suffer with mental or emotional problems. Ancient traditions state that when Dymphna was a teenager her mother died, and her father, a petty king of Oriel wanted to remarry a woman as beautiful as his wife who had just died. He slipped into mental illness and desired to marry his daughter. Dymphna was advised to flee the country which she did along with the priest who had instructed her for baptism, Fr. Gerebran, and two servants. Her father, who pursued her, killed her in a fit of rage. Dymphna and Fr. Gerebran were buried in a cave. Years later when the villagers decided to move the bodies for a more suitable burial they found in the cave two beautiful tombs, whiter than snow. Soon miraculous cures began to occur. St. Dymphna's fame as patroness of those who suffer with mental and emotional problems spread widely and people came to her shrine on pilgrijmage. Later a hospital was build near her shrine for the cure of mentally ill patients. After some time spent in the institution, most patients are placed in a home of one of the families of Gheel. St. Dymphna is invoked as the patron of those suffering from mental and emotional problems, mental health care workers, and abuse victims.

The booklet includes morning and evening prayer, a Novena to St. Dymphna, Prayer in Time of Distress, Prayer for Someone Suffering from Depression, Prayer for Those Suffering from Mental or Emotional Disorders, Litany in Honor of St. Dymphna, and more.
