St Thaney - Protector of the Abused
Showing all 3 results
St Thaney became pregnant after being raped when she was very much still a child. She was so innocent in her youth that her abuser was able to make her believe that he was in fact a woman and that his act of violence was normal behaviour among women. When the pregnancy became visible, her family rejected the young mother and threw her from a cliff to die.
By God’s care, Thaney survived the fall and she sailed in a coracle across the Firth of Forth to St Serf’s community in Culross, where she gave birth to a little boy, the future St Mungo (Kentigern) – his icon is also available from the Monastery bookstore.
She is now a wonderful protectress and spiritual healer for those who have suffered abuse.
