This is one reason why I chose this forum over some others such as Catholic.org which (as I understand) require divulging real-world information beyond an email address. Despite all of the security measures one could take, someone who wants in can often find a way to get in, and this is true of any server or site. Hence it is best to keep a low profile.

Yes it's quite something. I once tried to do a tree of the relationships of saints through time, from the Fathers, to track who knew whom.. but the fact that the saints relationships are also with those in Heaven while they are on this earth, really.. Well.. Cheesy

That would be quite a project... probably not something that is completely possible this side of heaven, but still worthy of a try!

The links policy is basically users do not post links, one requests a moderator to do it, but even this is discouraged. And the reasons behind this have to do with all the bad content out there, especially violations of modesty. A fuller explanation is in the announcements. Cheesy

So we ask folks to quote or say in their own words what they want to share.

I think that results in better content than just links, anyway. During my various and sundry apologetics debates at CAF I found that the opponents never really bothered to read the links, anyway...

Being new I'm not too familiar with the link policy. I do know the URL tag is disabled at the moment, hence the use of only the domain above. But given who this thread is about I'm pretty sure there won't be many links as she is, unfortunately, not that well known. Hopefully there will be book or other offline recommendations as well.

Re your second post, the Cure of Ars and St. Philomena come to mind. They knew each other despite being nearly a thousand years apart!

I have been trying to track down resources, such as books, chapels or shrines and images, related to St. Dymphna. I have a personal devotion to her due to God providing her help when I was in a period of great anxiety.

I'll start it off by linking to her U.S. national shrine (natlshrinestdymphna.org). There you can also order a book by Fr. Lawrence Lovasik ("the white book") that provides a biography of her and also a history of the development of modern psychiatric care in Gheel, Belgium, the site of her martyrdom, at her inspiration.

Would anyone like to share personal experiences or good resources on this saint?
