St. Dymphna

Why, you may or may not ask, is this blog called Dymphna's Well? St. Dymphna is the patron saint of those with mental illnesses and nerve disorders and is a saint close to my heart. I run a Catholic forum called St. Dymphna's Well on Delphiforums. It is a place for support for those of us who suffer, or who have a family member who suffers from any form of mental illness. We discuss anything and everything from paranoia to ADD. So many people leave the Church because of their acute suffering, when there is so much comfort to be had from Catholicism.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
