Learn about the patron saint of those with mental illness and epilepsy, healthcare workers, rape victims, incest victims, and runaways with this St. Dymphna holy card. The attractive full color, folded holy card is made in Italy and features the world famous Fratelli-Bonello artwork with gold stamped trim. Inside this 5-3/8" x 3-1/4" piece is her biography, her feast day, the meaning of her name and a prayer in her honor. The front cover of the St. Dymphna holy card is a classic Italian portrayal of the saint who is quite relevant in modern times. She is shown sitting wearing a scarf, holding a book with a shamrock design and flowers.

The St. Dymphna holy card biography tells of her birth in 7th century Ireland. Unfortunately, her mother died when Dymphna was 14 and the father was inconsolable. This grief plunged him into mental illness; when his advisors directed him to find a wife like his previous one, they turned to Dymphna. Her priest fled with her, but was ultimately found and killed her for not obeying him. This St. Dymphna holy card brings comfort to those who care for or suffer from similar pain.
