I am sure that they felt they were being closer to Christ by suffering. But there are many, many other saints who did not abuse themselves who are just as holy. Just my two cents.

Or maybe they were not abusing their bodies and it just seemed so to others.

To attribute claims of holiness to mental disorder and mistake may not be prudent.

I did not say they were mentally disordered. I am saying they probably believed that physical suffering made them closer to Christ. There is nothing wrong with wanting to imitate Christ in his sufferings. The martrys did when they were given a choice to deny Christ and live, or keep the faith and die. Still, that is NOT the same as self-imposed torture.

You claimed that they died because they abused their bodies. That indicates a disorder of medical or psychological nature. To fast is not the same thing as loss of appetite (anorexia). There is no merit in having a medical condition, but there is in accepting the suffering.
