April 14 - Saint Lidwina

 

This Dutch saint from the 15th century was from a family of modest means and she had many suitors. Lidwina rejected them because she felt called to devote herself in body and soul to God. An accident in the snow left her quite sick and she had to endure many pains and illnesses. Along with her physical ailments she encountered many moral pains, feeling great temptations and doubts. St. Lidwina endured it all simply by looking at the crucifix.
