Novena to St. Dymphna

On the first, eleventh, and twenty first of each month I begin a Novena. Today I started a Novena to St. Dymphna. She is the patroness of those afflicted with mental and nervous disorders. Won't you join me?

Novena to St. Dymphna

O God, we humbly beseech You
through Your servant, St. Dymphna,
who sealed with her blood
the love she bore You,
to grant relief to those
who suffer from mental afflictions
and nervous disorders, especially...

(Mention the person's name here.)

St. Dymphna,
helper of the mentally afflicted,
pray for us.

Glory be to the Father...
