Protect us from all anxiety, part two

The interwebs being what they are, who knows whether the information you find is accurate or not, but I’m desperate, so here you go. This is Saint Dymphna, an Irish lass from the middle ages whose dad went insane, tried to rape her and then decapitated her, which explains why she is the patron saint of those with nervous disorders. I’m praying for the worrywart in my life. If you’ve got a second, maybe you could do me the very great favor of doing the same.

Saint Dymphna

Saint Dymphna

Lord, our God, you graciously chose Saint Dymphna as patroness of those afflicted with mental and nervous disorders. She is thus an inspiration and a symbol of charity to the thousands who ask her intercession. Please grant, Lord, through the prayers of this pure youthful martyr, relief and consolation to all suffering such trials, and especially those for whom we pray. We beg you, Lord, to hear the prayers of Saint Dymphna on our behalf. Grant all those for whom we pray patience in their sufferings and resignation to your divine will. Please fill them with hope, and grant them the relief and cure they so much desire. We ask this through Christ our Lord who suffered agony in the garden. Amen.
