Compassionate Lord, when Saint Dymphna was fourteen, her mother died and her distraught father thought he could fill the hole in his life by marrying his daughter. When she fled, he tracked her down. When she still refused to marry him, he cut off her head in a rage. I ask her to intercede for those in my life who are handicapped by mental disorders or emotional instability. Heal us, O Savior. Touch the inner wounds of these precious people, and bring wholeness to each life. Help them find You in their moments of deep hurt, and replace their emptiness with Your love. Saint Dymphna, pray for us. Amen.
