Saint Dymphna was raised by a Christian mother and a pagan father. Her mother died when she was a teenager, and eventually fled her home after her father made advances towards her. When her father found her and she refused him once again, he murdered Dymphna. Many miracles have occurred at the site of Dymphna's murder, which have been attributed to her. The Saint Dymphna statue features a likeness of the girl holding a sword. St. Dymphna is the patron saint of mental and nervous disorders.
