St. Dymphna Shrine in Gheel, Belgium?

Jump to last reply

I'm trying to find out some information about a shrine for St. Dympha, patron saint for those with mental illnesses. All I can find from the web is that it's in a town called Gheel which is in Belgium (also sometimes spelled Geel). I gather there is a mental institution at the site as well as a shrine, and that miracles were known to have taken place here.

I can not even find information on where Gheel IS! Train websites have no information at all and I couldn't find it on any map. Does anyone have ANY information about this? (And please, don't attack my religious beliefs)

Thank you
