In just a few days I will be headed to Massillon, Ohio, to visit Father Gretchko at the National Shrine of St. Dymphna. Actually, I first made plans to visit the Shrine and then met Fr. Gretchko, the priest in charge there, via email. He is very accomodating, I must say. He is also a parish priest and I hope to visit his parish and attend Mass there when we go.

About St. Dymphna, follow the link here and learn more about her. She is loved and counted on by countless Catholics with mental illness, and for good reason. Her mentally ill father tried to rape her. She refused and he lopped off her head. Yikes! St. Dymphna was a princess so she is also patroness of princesses.
