St. Lydwine was bedridden from the age of fifteen, when she broke a rib while ice skating, and endured a lifelong illness that was probably one of the first documented cases of multiple sclerosis. 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. Imprimatur. 252 pgs, PB
