“seeress” Says Peace Depends on Fulfillment of Biblical Prophecies

Download PDF for this date

Mrs. Eileen Garrett, an Irish “seeress” who came to Los Angeles recently as a guest of the American Society of Psychical Research, in an interview in the Los Angeles Times states definitely that the peace of the world depends upon the Biblical prophecies’ fulfillment relating to the Jews, and that these prophecies will be fulfilled.

“One of the striking events of the future will be the fulfillment of the prophecies in regard to the Jews. It will be demonstrated that they are indeed the Lord’s chosen people”, she said. “In every Jew, even the ignorant unlettered, unbathed emigrant from the cruel ghettos of the steppes, there is a sacred fire of spirituality and artistry. The most successful of all people in a material way, they are one of the least material at heart. They have brains, imagination and concentrated industry. Their sway will grow every year. As their influence extends, the narrow savage hatreds of nationalism will shudder down to a feeble flicker. The Jew is international in spirit. As he rises to power the vast brotherhood of man will grow. The world will be knit together as never before. Boundaries between countries will be for geographies; not for sentries with loaded guns.

“As the Jew spreads his influence over the world, the international jag of feminism will fade away. The whole structure of Jewish faith and Jewish custom is built upon family relation; and in this family relation the woman does not make speeches from the top of cracker boxes. Of all men in the world, the Jew knows best how to treat his wife and to have a happy home”.

Mrs. Garrett is not a spiritualist nor does she know how she arrives at her prophecies. She does not claim any supernatural powers.
