St. Lidwina of Schiedam

Saint Lidwina of Schiedam

Saint Lidwina is also known as:

  • Lydwine

  • Lydwid

  • Lidwid

  • Liduina of Schiedam

Saint Lidwina was born in Schiedam, the Netherlands on March 18, 1380. When Saint Lidwina was fifteen years old, she was ice skating and fell.

 Saint Lidwina

She broke a rib in the mishap. Saint Lidwina never fully recovered and became an invalid. It is believed that Saint Lidwina was the first known case of multiple sclerosis.

Saint Lidwina Legend

Saint Lidwina fasted constantly after her accident. She became known as a holy woman and a healer. Some villagers thought she was possessed by an evil spirit.

While Saint Lidwina was bedridden, she ate no food and never slept. The story told is that at first, Saint Lidwina ate a small slice of an apple, then the servings became a small piece of a date, and then water from the river contaminated with salt. It is documented that Saint Lidwina lost skin, bones, parts of her body fell off, and she lost pieces of her intestines. Saint Lidwina’s parents kept the body parts in a vase. Saint Lidwina told her mother to bury the body parts.

Saint Lidwina died at fifty-three years of age on April 14, 1433. She had continued her miraculous fasting for her entire life.

Saint Edwina Patron Saint

Saint Lidwina was canonized by Pope Leo XIII on March 14, 1890. Saint Lidwina is the patron saint of the chronically ill, ice skaters, and the town of Schiedam. Her feast day is celebrated on April 14.

Many Catholics who suffer from multiple sclerosis wear a Saint Lidwina medal, praying for her intercession for relief of their suffering. A Saint Lidwina pendant is often given to a person who is afflicted with a debilitating disease to offer them strength and to remind them to put their faith in the mercy of Jesus Christ.
