Saint Lydwine of Schiedam (1380-1433)


Saint Lydwine of Schiedam (1380-1433)

by J. K. Huysmans


This amazing saint was raised by God in Holland during the Great (Western) Schism when the Church was racked and split by two antipopes.

She was bedridden from age 15, when she broke a rib, endured a lifelong illness which was recognized to be of supernatural origin. Her body became covered with sores and abscesses and virtually came apart into three pieces-symbolically representing the condition of the Church. She ate no food except Holy Communion and experienced many mystical phenomena.

An incredible story of one of the most heroic victim souls in the history of the Church!
