Saint Lidwina was a Dutch mystic whose life was one of suffering and devotion to Our Lady. At 15, she had a skating accident that left her with a broken rib that turned gangrene. This internal infection caused her immeasurable suffering, blindness and multiple sclerosis from age 15 to 53. She also suffered the stigmata for 7 years and subsided on the Eucharist for 19 years. In a vision, she heard, "When this shall be in bloom, your suffering will be at an end.” Lidwina in a vision saw a blooming rosebush and died after Jesus Himself administered the Sacrament of Extreme Unction.
