St Dymphna Medal, Antiqued Silver Pewter
Medal of Saint Dymphna in nickle & lead free silver pewter.
According to a long-standing sacred tradition St. Dymphna was the daughter of a pagan Irish king named Damon, and his Christian wife. Dymphna was raised by the devout queen to believe in Jesus. Things took a turn for the worse for the teenager when the queen suddenly died, and her grief-stricken father decided his daughter would take her place. When she refused, her father killed her.
After her death, miraculous healings of the mentally ill began to take place which were attributed to St Dymphna. She became the Patron Saint of sexual assault and domestic violence victims and those with stress, psychological and neurological disorders.
