For the past 8+ years, I have been dealing with a voice issue. I saw two local ENT’s, I have a voice therapist, physical therapist and have seen my own doctor. It was finally decided that I should go to Boston. Boston is the Mecca of medicine. They are known to have many of the best physicians in their fields. So, this past Thursday I made the trek to Mass Eye and Ear to see a laryngologist.
Many of you have been praying for me. And I want to share with you the doctor’s diagnosis. He said that I have dysphonia. Dysphonia is a rare condition that effects the voice, making it sound hoarse, rough, raspy, strand, weak, breathy or gravely. It can either gradual or sudden. It involves a problem with the vocal cords. There is no explanation of what causes this abnormality and there is currently no cure. However, it can be treated through injections and voice therepy.
I have been undergoing voice therepy for 8+ years. I will return to Boston for a followup evaluation and discuss options.
As I said, there is no permanent cure for dysphonia. However, God can work a miracle. And, my friend Eileen George needs miracles for her future cause (God willing).
Eileen George was a wife, mother of 8, grandmother and great grandmother. She was a woman who had many supernatural gifts that are the like of Padre Pio and Catherine of Siena. Eileen began attracting priests who sought her counsel as when she was in her early 30’s. Eventually, under obedience to her spiritual director Fr. Raphael Simon, and Bishops Bernard Flanagan and Timothy Harrington of the Diocese of Worcester, and the permission of her husband, Eileen was sent forth with a teaching ministry that lead her throughout the world. Her preaching was confirmed by countless healings and miracles. Eileen’s ministry continues today to promote Eileen’s teachings on God the Father and a return to the Sacraments.
I’m asking you to continue to pray for a healing of my voice through the intercession of Eileen George. If you would like more information about Eileen or a copy of the prayer, please visit our website.
I’m writing for your prayers. For the past 8+ years, I have been dealing with a voice ailment. I have been seeing a voice patholagist on and off since 2013, and a physical therapist for the past two months. During this time, my voice has recovered and relapsed on several occasions. My doctor recently stated: “You are a professional, Father. You need your voice.” After which he prescribed a muscle relaxer. Again, I can have an almost perfect voice for part of a Mass and later go several days of degradation.
For this reason, I am asking your assistance in joining me in pleading with my friend, Eileen George, to pick some flowers from the field and “send them to earth,” that “they will turn into graces and blessings” of healing of my voice. At the end of this novena, I will consume the last few drops of Eileen’s “healing wine” that she gave to me many years ago. And I will offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in thanksgiving for graces received, and for all who joined me in this novena. I need my voice, and Eileen needs to provide miracles. The Father promised that the healings and miracles would be more numerous and powerful after her death. And please, pray for my voice only through the intercession of Eileen George so that if God’s grants our plea, we will know that it came through Eileen’s intercession.
The novena will begin on September 2nd and end on September 10th. I will celebrate a Mass of thanksgiving for graces received and for all who have joined me in this novena at 5:00 pm on September 10th.
