Eileen O’Connor’s Extraordinary Life!

Diocese of Broken Bay鈥檚 Bishop Anthony Randazzo has long admired Eileen O鈥機onnor as an extraordinary woman who constantly thought of others. Bishop Anthony notes the importance of Eileen as a beacon for human dignity,

鈥溾 symbol of hope in our time when so many issues where the life and dignity of the human person are under question.鈥

Eileen O鈥機onnor (1892-1921) suffered a crippling break in her spine as a three year old and was in constant pain throughout her life. A visitation from the Blessed Virgin Mary in her teen years encouraged Eileen to offer up her health and suffering for the good of others. Eileen co-founded and lead the religious order of Our Lady鈥檚 Nurses of the Poor 鈥 more commonly known as the Brown Nurses. She was affectionately nicknamed 鈥淭he Little Mother鈥.

Eileen O鈥機onnor became a Servant of God in August 2018, and is on the path towards becoming Australia鈥檚 second saint. Postulator for her cause, Fr Anthony Robbie, describes Eileen as 鈥渁 very compelling, magnetic individual鈥. He recognises her twice-exceptionality when he goes on to say 鈥淪he鈥檚 a little person of this world in every visible way, [yet] supernaturally she鈥檚 a giant. She exceeded the bounds of her human nature in the most wonderful way and brought happiness and light and life into the lives of so many people.聽And that鈥檚 never passed away.鈥

We will proudly honour and continue her legacy through the Eileen O鈥機onnor School.
