Who is Eileen George?
Eileen George was a wife and mother of eight children. She had terminal cancer, but never allowed it to interfere with her teaching and healing ministry, and her ministry to priests.
Eileen was a Roman Catholic who was devoted to her Church and its teachings. She placed herself at the service of all and loved all, regardless of race, color or religion.
Eileen was chosen by God to bring a simple message to all people. He desired to be recognized as a real father to His children, loving, gentle, caring; He wished to be a part of their life. He is not aloof, cold, or authoritarian.
The Beginnings of Eileen’s Ministry
Eileen always had a very great reverence for what she called “the royal priesthood of Jesus Christ.” Priests began to go to Eileen for advice even when she was a young woman. They told her of their problems and difficulties, of things they did not even tell their confessors. They recognized in her a special love and wisdom, and realized that the Father revealed things to her, including the secrets of their hearts. Her ministry to priests began about the mid 1960’s, when Eileen was in her thirties.
Gradually the Father began to unfold the extent of Eileen’s mission. She came to realize that the special intimacy which was gratuitously given her by the Father with Jesus, with Himself, with the Holy Spirit, with Our Lady, the angels and saints, was given in view of the work He had in store for her.
In fact it seems that His purpose was to bring many through Eileen, and insofar as they respond, to a similar intimacy with Himself.
The Father and Eileen George’s Mission
The Father told Eileen that He sent His Son to humankind. He sent His Mother. He sent the Holy Spirit. All have been rejected. That is, the world as a whole continued to live apart from the Father, enclosed in its own occupations with very little thought of Him or of its true destiny and purpose, which is union with Himself, for He alone can give it happiness.
The Father had no one else to send. So He came to His children through Eileen. He wanted all people to know of His great love for them, of His desire to be a part of their lives and to make them a part of His life. He told Eileen that this is humankind’s last chance.
Eileen is a Beacon
The Father has a message for the world, which He is transmitted through Eileen. It was the Father’s intention that He would “shine through Eileen as a beacon,” leading all to safety in His arms and to a new world of peace, justice and love. All those who helped Him in this initiative of His love and mercy with an upright intention would be blessed by the Father.
How the Father’s Message is Given
How does the Father transmit this message? First of all, through the love of Himself and of His Son and the Holy Spirit that He poured into Eileen’s heart and which radiated to people, and was visible to them, as was His joy. The Father wanted Eileen to reflect Him and His love.
But He has also drew Eileen into a deep intimacy with His Son and then with Himself. This intimacy is not just for Eileen. As she often said to the Father: “I want to love you more than anyone has ever loved you. I want all to love You as I love You.” And she added: “But I want to love You the best!”
In other words, the Father drew her into this intimacy so that she in turn, by her prayers, sufferings, example, and teachings would lead others to a similar intimacy. She said: “You may not hear Him as I hear Him, but He will speak to you in a way He finds best for you.”
The Father wants everyone to know that He “loves them beyond all human understanding.” Eileen often said: “He adores you with a small ‘a’.” He asks that His children come to Him rather than separating themselves from Him by sin and lack of attention. He wants them to love Him, and to receive His gifts and blessings.
Eileen and the Church
Eileen was proud to be a Roman Catholic. She often said: “We have it all.” She did not mean that Catholics are all that they should be. In fact she believed that Catholics will only return to their identity when they return to sound doctrine and tradition.
While Eileen stressed the importance of sound doctrine and tradition, she was not a traditionalist. She accepted the doctrine and discipline of the Church, including the teaching of Vatican Council II, of John Paul II, and her local Bishop, the Most Reverend Timothy J. Harrington and their successors. Eileen believed in obedience to the Church. She said: “There has never been a disobedient saint and there never will be.”
Eileen will be Persecuted
The Father told Eileen that she would be persecuted. But she never wavered from sound doctrine and tradition, nor watered it down. She was an example of courage to bishops, priests and lay people so that they too would stand firmly in their faith. To do this it is necessary to strive to love the Lord with one’s whole mind, heart, and strength, and one’s neighbor as oneself. Otherwise one will not be able to withstand the persecution which comes especially from well-meaning people within the Church. One must think, not of being popular, but of pleasing Jesus.
Eileen and the Ecumenical Movement
Eileen believed that those outside the Church lose their respect for Catholics who try to please them by watering down Catholic doctrine, even though to their face they may not indicate this loss of respect. In their hearts, they respect those who hold to their identity, to doctrine, and tradition. If the Church were to give up its identity, union with other Christians would not be unity but self-destruction.
Eileen taught that faith is a shield. When a warrior bends too far outside his shield, he is wounded. This can happen to those who are trying to please those of other faiths. Eileen wanted all to know where she stood. And she was ready out of service to all, for all are the Father’s beloved children.
Eileen’s Attitude Towards Her Mission
The extent of Eileen’s mission was awesome – but not to her. Eileen was so wrapped up in her love for the Father, and for Jesus, that her greatest suffering was her human separation from Him, imposed by her bodily life. This does not mean that Eileen did not enjoy her bodily life. She had and rode an award winning horse, and was even an expert marksman. Through her bodily life, she knew and loved all of the Father’s creations, His plants, animals, and especially His children, in whom she found His reflection.
Eileen was fulfilled in her life as a wife and mother. She accepted the activity required by her mission only insofar as her husband approved of it. She had very close family ties. She enjoyed her domestic life. She said: “God did not make all the good things for the bad people.”
Nevertheless, for Eileen, this world, beautiful as it is, is but a pale reflection of the next world. For her, death will be the doorway to a fully unburdened life with the Father, Jesus and the Holy Spirit, the angels, and the saints. Since she had terminal cancer, she believed this full life was not far away – she desired and longed for this fullness of life, even though she was sensitive to the pain her going would cause her family and friends.
Eileen was conscious that the Father sustained her life so that she can carry out His work. She knew that she was to finish this work before she could be with Him fully. Her mission, then, however great it was in the eyes of her friends, was for her at times a duty that took her away from her family. She did it willingly, out of obedience and love for the Father, and the good of His children.
Eileen said that as she went on, the veils between her, and the Father, and Jesus were dropping, but she knew there are many more. For these veils to drop away she had to strive to be a better person and fulfill the Father’s will. Only at death would all these veils fall away in her embrace of Jesus and of the Father.
Eileen and Her Gifts
Eileen did not look upon her gifts as the means to her personal sanctification. She recognized that they are given to her for the building up of the body of Christ and as such they were be used faithfully by her for that purpose. She repeatedly told the Father that she would go through any door He opened. He in turn told her that He will not invade anyone’s free will. He offered the grace to others to open the door to Eileen’s ministry, but it was for them to accept this grace.
Eileen’s Healing Service
The second part of Eileen’s service was a healing service. The Father used healings to manifest His love and to attract His children to the teaching, just as He did in Gospel times, when His Spirit drew the crowds to Jesus. At her healing services, the Father worked healings, small and great, physical, psychological and spiritual, as well as domestic, and financial. Eileen urged all who received a physical healing to confirm it with the their physician and then to come back and give glory to God. She told them not to discontinue their medications and not to take off their braces, prescribed by their physicians, but to follow their doctor’s instructions. She said that God respects physician’s vocation, which comes from Him, and He will not overstep it.
A feature of these healings was “the word of knowledge,” by which the Father told Eileen who was being healed, and of what they were being healed. She would often know some of the details, which she made known only to the extent that this did not embarrass the Father’s children.
Eileen walked among the people during her healing services, until her own illness no longer allowed, and sometimes she touched one or another who was being healed, and sometimes whispered words to them. At her services the Father gave all who come and who were open to Him an increase of love for Him and of each other. They left changed.
While people often came for the healings, their interest shifted to the teaching, which healed them at a deeper, spiritual level, bringing peace, and renewed purpose to their lives. This led them to recognize the Father’s love, and to respond with love for Him, and to become better people.
In her teaching as well as in her healing service Eileen explained that those to whom the Father did not give a healing were nonetheless loved by Him. He gave them spiritual gifts of great value to change their lives and to become better and happier persons.
Eileen often said that she was not the healer, Jesus alone is the healer. She said that Jesus honored the expectant faith which people have in coming to healing services.
Eileen and Priests
Eileen said that priests are unique and irreplaceable. They are necessary to the laity and to the Church. Through them Jesus comes onto the altar and into the hearts of the faithful and abides in the tabernacle.
Eileen taught that priests need to be loved, not judged nor chastised. Good priests will become better and draw others with them to Jesus.
