St. Dymphna's Feast Day

Today is the Feast of St. Dymphna.   In 620 AD she (an Irish princess) ran away from home with some friends because her Pagan father wanted to marry her.  He caught up with her and cut off her head.  Fast forward a few hundred years, her tomb is found in the forest and the local village has become a safe haven for the mentally deranged and neurologically compromised.  (Gheel, Belgium)

This tells us that good can come from evil.  It also tells us that family members can be treacherous.  St. Dymphna is a gal pal of mine.   Good can come from horrendous circumstances.
