The 25th Anniversary of the Opening of Venerable Mary Angeline Teresa McCrory's Cause for Beatification and Canonization was celebrated on September 10, 2017 at Saint Teresa's Motherhouse in Germantown, New York.  Venerable Mary Angeline Teresa founded the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm on September 3, 1929 and pioneered a way of caring for the elderly that has become a standard of care today.  Bishop Howard Hubbard, who was then bishop of the Diocese of Albany and who knew Mother personally, was the principal celebrant at the Eucharistic celebration held in the Sisters'  chapel to honor the occasion.  Very Reverend Mario Esposito, O.Carm., Vice-Postulator, was the homilist.  Rev. Roberto Perez, O.Carm. and Rev. Joseph Finch also concelebrated. 

Below is Father Mario's homily.
