Venerable Mary Angeline Teresa: Anniversary of Death and Birth 2021

Sister Helena - Saturday, January 23, 2021

The Carmelite Sisters celebrated Venerable Mary Angeline Teresa McCrory's 37th anniversary of death and 128th anniversary of her birth on January 21, 2021. The Eucharistic liturgy was offered by Very Rev. Mario Esposito, O.Carm. Vice-Postulator of her Cause for Beatification and Canonization.  The event was held at St. Teresa's Motherhouse in Germantown, New York.  It was attended by the Avila Sisters and was streamed LIVE to the public. Due to the COVID-19 restrictions and public safety guidelines, the McCrory family was not able to attend the celebration. It was with great anticipation and joy that the story of our Venerable Foundress was shown by EWTN on the same day in a program called "They Might Be Saints."  It is our hope and prayer that God will grant our great desire to have this woman, courageous in adversity, be numbered among the Saints of the Catholic Church and give glory to Carmel and the Universal Church! Father Mario's homily can be read below.

Prayer for Advancement of Ven. Mary Angeline Teresa's Cause for Beatification and Canonization:

“Almighty and eternal Father, we thank you for the inspiration You gave to your daughter, Mother M. Angeline Teresa, to establish the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm, and to provide loving care for countless elderly men and women with compassion and a respect for their dignity and a regard for life in all its stages. If it be Your gracious will, grant that the virtues of Mother M. Angeline Teresa may be recognized and provide a lasting example for your people. We ask this through Our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, One God, forever and ever. Amen."
