Question Patron Saint of Multiple Sclerosis

Hi there,
I have gone to several websites looking for the patron saint of multiple sclerosis for a friend who was just diagnosed.
I am not finding anything concrete! HELP!

Thanks!

I have myasthenia gravis. St. Bartholomew is one patron saint of neurological disease.

Dymphna is sometimes invoked, but I always associate her with emotional distress.

St. Peregrine is usually called the patron saint of cancer patients, but he is also the patron of chronic or incurable diseases generally, and also of disease affecting the legs specifically.

Among other things, St. Dymphna is, indeed, one of the patron saints of people who suffer from afflictions of the nervous system, which would include multiple sclerosis.

You may want to consider enrolling your friend in the League of St. Dymphna which operates out of the National Shrine of St. Dymphna of Massillon, Ohio.
For information on the shrine and the spiritual benefits received by league members, please visit this website. You can also arrange to get prayer cards, novena books, statues and third-class relics of St. Dymphna from this shrine.

She would probably benefit from Ampyra. I take this for my ms and it has strengthened my legs and increased muscle and speed.

My prayers go out to others who are either taking care of someone who has MS or has MS themselves.

My mom has prayed to St. Dymphna. My mom has suffered with MS for over 25 years now and I participate in the MS walk .

Hello,

I am showing symptoms of ms and thought I'd Google "Catholic saints with ms". It led me this forum, but there haven't been posts on here for a long time. I have a third class relic of St. Dymphna already in my collection of relics. Guess I'll ask for her intercession. Right now I'm not so sure what I'm facing, but I definitely an having symptoms and looking on the internet about ms. It would probably be good for me to find a support group, but I'd like a Catholic one. If you get this post, please respond. I'd like to hear more from you.

God bless,
Mary Jane

Hello GraduateGrandma - Mary Jane

I was diagnosed with MS in 1993. Usually, this disease strikes women more than men (2 of 3) and usually while we are in our 30's. Of course, that does not mean that younger or older people are not diagnosed, it is just more typical of women in their 30's. Find a Neurologist that specializes in MS. I saw several Neurologists thinking they would all have equal knowledge of the disease, but the doctors that specialize in MS will be best. I also searched for a Saint and found St. Dymphna.

God Bless You
