St. Dymphna Novena

Saint Dymphna was born in Ireland during the 7th century. Her feast day is traditionally celebrated on May 15; but of course, you can pray through her intercession any time!

Saint Dymphna is usually associated with accounts of miraculous cures of mental illness and she is often invoked for those inflicted with emotional and mental distress.

St. Dymphna Novena Prayers

Day 1: For Faith

O God, Source of our salvation, in the midst of a pagan people, Thou didst enlighten St. Dymphna by the light of the true faith, which she professed under the guidance of her holy confessor, Gerebran, with such constance that she suffered martyrdom. Through the intercession of these two saints, we beg Thee to strengthen the faith which Thou hast given us, so that by wisely subjecting our souls to Thy Supreme Authority, and by faithfully conforming our lives according to our faith, we may honor Thee with our whole heart and soul until the hour of our death. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Pray the Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be five times

Day 2: For Hope

Almighty and infinitely good God, Thou hast promised eternal salvation to those who obey Thy commandments and make zealous use of Thy graces. Through the intercession of St. Dymphna, who fled from the danger of sin by leaving the palace of her father, and who, eager to gain eternal salvation, fled to Belgium to live in poverty, we beg Thee to grant that we also, who are striving for eternal happiness, may overcome all obstacles in the way of virtue and may attain eternal salvation. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Pray the Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be five times

Day 3: For Charity

God of love, Thou art the most perfect Being, and Creator of all that is good and beautiful. Through the intercession of St. Dymphna, who in her youth loved Thee above all creatures and for Thy sake loved her neighbor as herself, as the image and likeness of Thee, as the price of the Blood of Jesus and as co-heir of heaven, be pleased to help us by Thy powerful grace, that we may faithfully fulfill the two great commandments of charity not only in word, but in action and in truth. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Pray the Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be five times

Day 4: For Piety

God, Our Creator and Supreme Master, St. Dymphna served Thee with great zeal even in her childhood, by hearing Thy word with delight, by assisting at Holy Mass with fervent reverence, and by receiving Holy Communion from the hand of St. Gerebran with tender devotion. Through her intercession we beg Thee to grant us the same virtue of piety so that, having honored Thee during this life as our Creator, we may possess Thee hereafter as our final reward. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Pray the Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be five times

Day 5: For Prudence

O God, ruler of the universe, Thou didst allow St. Dymphna to discover a helpful means of avoiding the evil intentions of her father. Through the merits of Thy holy servant, be pleased to grant that we may become, according to the words of Jesus, simple as doves and wise as serpents, so that through prudent advice and sound judgment we may recognize what we must do to achieve the great work of our salvation. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Pray the Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be five times

Day 6: For Justice

O God, source of eternal justice, Thou didst inspire St. Dymphna to flee from her country and her father in order to render to Thee that which was Thine. Through her intercession we beg Thee to make us seek after justice so that we may perform our duties toward Thee as we ought. Though Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Pray the Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be five times

Day 7: For Fortitude

O God, rewarder of those who remain firm in their good resolutions, Thou gavest St. Dymphna such a love of virtue that she had the courage to suffer privation, persecution, and even martyrdom. Through her prayers we beg Thee to grant us fortitude that we may courageously and perseveringly overcome ourselves and finally conquer the enemy of our salvation. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Pray the Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be five times

Day 8: For Temperance

O God, You made St. Dymphna resplendent in the virtue of temperance so that she mastered sensual inclinations and used temporal goods prudently. With temperance she combined the beautiful virtues of modesty, docility and humility. Let us not forget that humility is called the foundation of all virtue because it banishes from the soul pride, the obstacle to grace. Through the intercession of St. Dymphna, we beg Thee to guide and direct us, so that being preserved from evil and nervous disorders, we may obey till death the commandments and counsels Thou hast given us. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Pray the Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be five times

Day 9: For Chastity

O God, lover of innocent souls, Thou gavest St. Dymphna the virtue of angelic purity which made her reserved in all her actions, modest in her dress, attentive in her conversation, upright in her character, so that she even shed her blood to preserve this precious virtue. Through the intercession of St. Dymphna, we beg thee to bestow upon us the virtue of chastity that we may enjoy peace of conscience in this life and pure eternal joys of heaven hereafter. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Pray the Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be five times

More About St. Dymphna

We don’t know very much about Saint Dymphna. A lot of the history that we do know comes from oral tradition and written stories. But what we do know is that she was born in the 7th century in Ireland to a beautiful devout Christian mother, and to a pagan father who was also an Irish Chief.

When her mother died, her father became immensely depressed, and Saint Dymphna also suffered during that time. Her father looked for a replacement wife, and he was told by his advisors to pursue his daughter as his new wife.

Driven mad by his depression, he made advances on his daughter. Saint Dymphna fled to Belgium with her confessor and took refuge in a Chapel near the present day site of Gheel. Her father’s spies, however, tracked her down and her father found begged Dymphna to return to Ireland with him.

Dymphna refused, and her father decapitated her. At the time, she was only 15 years old.

A shrine was built on the spot where she was buried in Gheel, Belgium, and many miracles have taken place there since.

    I pray for you with my favorite prayer by St. Thomas Aquinas:

    Grant, O God, that Amber may have understanding of You, diligence in seeking You, wisdom in finding You, conduct pleasing to You, faithful perseverance in waiting for You, and confidence in finally embracing You.

    May she be cured of all that ails her, may she be every united in love with her family.

  61. This morning, I prayed to St. Dymphna for Intercession with my anxiety disorder and panic attacks (since age 5.) They are so distressing. Nothing has cured it. I’m 50 years old & have been praying & searching, for myself & everyone who has it, for a cure for years.

    This evening, I believe she may have answered the prayer.
    I located a high-rated, free IPhone App, a website & Youtube videos by a man who had the same problems for 14 years & found an effective cure. It’s basically several unique “self-help techniques” & includes a wonderful meditation technique.
    Maybe this is an answer to the prayer? I hope so & will try his suggestions!

    Not sure if I’m supposed to put the information on this forum but it looks like a LOT of people here need the hope/help, too. (It can be removed it if violates protocol.) He offers a lot of free information & some books/CD’s for purchase. The free IPhone app was really great & had numerous self-help techniques. I don’t know that a person would actually have to purchase anything, based on the free information he provided.
    His website is ilovepanicattacks.com. (Yes, it’s kind of an odd name for a website, but this young man appears to be a unique individual & is the author of Anxiety books, CD’s, etc. as a way to deal with it effectively. He is not a doctor or psychologist…just a previous anxiety/panic attack sufferer.)
    Thank you, St. Dymphna for Intercession to give me hope…and a possible cure. I pray it helps everyone searching/praying for help : ) xoxoxo

  62. St. Dymphna please be my advocate to our Lord our God and ask him to look favorably on my request.

    Please ask our Lord to resolve my breathing and swallowing problems so that I can live as healthy a life as I can.

    Also please St. Dymphna be by my side and ease the anxiety that I am feeling with this situation.

    Thank you for hearing my petition.

    Amen

    • I have swallowing probs as well and think it could be made worse with anxiety. If you see this message please send me an email. I would love to talk and pray with you!

  63. St. Dymphna, I ask that you guide me through my daily life as I am currently experiencing severe anxiety and panic disorder following the loss of my grandma. I was once at peace with my anxiety and I ask that the feeling of peace return. Amen.

  64. St Dymphna, I ask that you help take my fears, anxiety/social anxiety away from my life. I ask you to be with me everyday to help me get through my fears and anxiety.. that I can once be worry and anxiety free… I will pray daily for your guidance and support/help…..

  65. Please pray for me (Francis Duero). I’m currently having anxiety disorder. St. Dymphna, intercede for me to Jesus.

  66. I and my daughter, my mother and my sister all suffer from some sort of mental disorder..(bi-polar, borderline personality disorder). We have all been suffering with these pains for our entire lives. I have been to psychiatrists all of my afdult life. I have passed on my ailment to my beloved daughter, who is a bit estranged. My heart and my brain are always full of fear and pain, especially for my daughter. As far as my mother is concerned, she was never treated, she has never recognized she has some problems and consequently our lives have never been happy. Now, as our later years are here, I would like to be able to get along with her, to help her, to take care of her. I do not have the knowledge to do that. I wish you would pray for all of us..As for me, I wish for God to give knowledge of His will for me, to show me how to carry it out and to give me the strength to do so.

  67. St. Dymphna,
    Please pray for me for my healing and freedom from anxiety, panic disorders and these fearful thoughts that I have. Please help me to have trust and faith in God that all is going to be ok really soon. I also ask that the doctors treating my condition are being used by God’s healing power and grace for my healing. I ask all this in Jesus Mighty Holy Name. Amen

  68. St. Dymphna, pray for me as I work to help my patients find peace after so much carnage, abuse, and human cruelty. I pray for guidance and courage as I work to help these brave men and women find their way back from the abyss of anger and blame and rediscover the light of love in their hearts.
