NOTICE: I am a practicing Catholic, active and in good-standing with my local parish, who professes faith and loyalty to the Church and our Holy Father. This "little work" is purely a personal expression of that faith and loyalty, and not an officially recognized ministry in the Diocese of Honolulu. ~ Peter

*** NOTE: My sick-visits with Holy Relics are NOT intended to replace the Church's Sacrament of Healing: I simply display the relic for devotional purposes while praying with the patient to the Saint/Blessed for healing. In situations where there is a sense of urgency, I always advocate the administering of the Sacrament of Healing by a Catholic priest.

Given these uncertain times when many people suffer from stress and anxiety, I thought it would be timely to feature the Patron Saint of Mental Afflictions – the Virgin-Martyr, St. Dymphna.
Lord, through the intercession of St. Dymphna, your martyred servant, grant us peace of mind and free us from all stress and anxiety. Amen.
