Saint Dymphna Medal Holy Card MC022
Includes a full-color holy card with two healing prayers, a saint biography and an oxidized silver patron saint medal.
Saint Dymphna was the daughter of an Irish chieftan, named Damon, and beautiful devoted Christian woman whose name has never been known. Her mother died when she was only 14. Wrought with grief over his wife's death, Damon became mentally ill and began to search for a new bride resembling his wife. When none could be found, his maddened grief lead him to make advances on his beautiful daughter.
Saint Dymphna fought off his advances and fled to Belgium. After an extensive search, her father found her in Gheel, Belgium. Damon demanded that she return with him to Ireland. When she refused, he drew his sword in rage and struck off her head.
The crown of martyrdom was bestowed upon Saint Dymphna about the year 620. Many people suffering with depression or emotional disorders have been miraculously healed at Saint Dymphna's shrine in Gheel, Belgium.
Saint Dymphna is recognized today as the patroness of those who suffer from depression or emotional disorders. Her feast day is May 15th.
