Prayer in Honor of St. Dymphna

Lord Jesus Christ, You have willed that St. Dymphna should be invoked by thousands of clients as the patroness of nervous and mental disease and have brought it about that her interest in these patients should be an inspiration to and an ideal of charity throughout the world. Grant that, through the prayers of this youthful martyr of purity, those who suffer from nervous and mental illness everywhere on earth may be helped and consoled. I recommend to you in particular . . .
Be pleased to hear the prayers of St. Dymphna and of your Blessed Mother. Give those whom I recommend the patience to bear with their affliction and resignation to do your divine will. Give them the consolation they need and especially the cure they so much desire, if it be your will. Through Christ Our Lord.

Amen.
