Here is a very nice article on St Dymphna: St. Dymphna: Out of the Shadows of Mental Illness.
St Dymphna is Patron Saint of the Anxious, Mentally Ill, and those with Alzheimer’s Disease.
Little Biography of Ss. Dymphna and Gerebran, her Martyred Confessor
St Dymphna’s Mom was an Irish Christian, but died when she was around 12. Then her screwed up Pagan Dad, decided to want to pursue his own daughter as his next wife. She refused, and with the help, of her Confessor, Fr. Gerebran she fled Ireland, and made it to Gheel, Belgium. But, her dad followed her and her Confessor to Belgium, and again tried to get his way. The Confessor, Fr. Gerebran defended Dymphna, so her Dad killed him first. Then, he killed his own daughter, Dymphna.
St Dymphna and her Confessor both are Catholic Martyrs and that word ‘martyr’ means ‘witness’ to the True Faith. They died defending their own God-given dignity. That gives others, in similar situations cause for “courage.” Fortitude is a Gift of the Holy Spirit. Since Pentecost is on Sunday, take time to thank God for the many witnesses of that Gift of Fortitude in others.
My advise to anyone, never let anyone jerk your chain, get under your skin, or upset u.
Pray for the mentally ill, to find peace and eventually healing. Thanks.
Always Remember, when you are tempted to fret, that Jesus said,
“Let not your heart be troubled. Trust in God, Trust also, in Me.”
