Is there a saint for seizures?


#1

Friends,
I good friend of mine has a 4 year old daughter who has been in the hospital for seizures. Who can she pray to? Any suggestions?:gopray2:

Thanks so much,
Eli

I believe St. Dymphna would be the one you want. She’s the patroness of people with mental and nervous disorders. I don’t know whether that includes all neurological disorders but it can’t hurt.

A list. St. Vitus, one of the Fourteen Holy Helpers is probably the most famous for this. :slight_smile:

I think that you will find that St. Valentine, who was himself an epileptic, is considered a Patron Saint for epileptics.:gopray2: :blessyou:

Hi Eli :wave: I have also found several links, to suggest that St. Valentine :heart: is a Patron of those who suffer from Epilepsy and seizures. I’ll pray for your friends precious child. May the seizures stop. :frowning:

Hope this helps.
