Cardinal George was truly a stalwart of the Catholic Faith who lived out its teachings, preached the truth of the Gospel, and lived as Christ’s witness to those around him.

Cardinal George was selected as the first to be featured in this documentary series by Shalom World TV because of his immense passion for Jesus Christ and His Church.

Throughout the filming, both religious and lay shared stories of their interactions with the Cardinal and gave a telling overview of the amazing legacy he left the world.

Francis Eugene George, O.M.I, was born into a loving family that fostered his desire for becoming a priest of God. While being stricken with polio in his early teens nearly derailed his path, God’s will for Francis’ life was undeniable; and although the Cardinal often warned others of his unsteady legs, caused by the polio, his faith was unshakable. Cardinal George was a man whom the Church needed at just the right time and his contributions serve as an inspiration to many today.

Cardinal George was also involved in the life and restoral of St. John Cantius parish and helped found the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius.
