“By a spirit of love and dedication in our work we will receive countless blessings.”

Dear Friends of Mother Angeline,

The peace and joy of the Risen Christ be with you!

As we mark the Feast of Easter 2021, we do so in a spirit of joy and of hope. The Christian people, even as they meet the various crosses of life, are called to face life with two virtues: joy and hope.

Easter is a celebration of joy, the triumph of Christ over the powers of sin, death and darkness, and a steadfast hope in the knowledge that Christ’s victory is ours as well, and though for a moment things may seem dark, the light will come. The Liturgy of Holy Week and Easter invites us to walk through the lows and highs, the darkness and light of Christ’s journey, and to realize that his path is ours, though not as dramatically, and his destiny – eternal life here and now with God – is for us as well.

Long before the Vatican II Council’s Decree on the Renewal of Liturgy, Venerable Mary Angeline Teresa loved and devoted herself to the sacred liturgy. All the ceremonies of the Church’s year were celebrated with devotion and beauty among the Carmelites and the Sisters assisted at these liturgies with beautiful music and prayerful preparation. We do well at this Eastertime to recall her love for the liturgy, especially for the Holy Eucharist, the center of our Catholic life, as well as her devotion to the Priesthood and to praying for priests and encouraging vocations. These are vital elements of her beautiful gift to the Church.

Christ is Risen, He truly is, Alleluia! Easter graces and blessings to all who share our affection for the life and charism of Mother Angeline Teresa, O.Carm. No doubt, our world needs her example of faith, hope and joy. May our Easter remembrances stir up our hope and our joy, and may we be true witnesses of the Risen Christ and His loving power to all whom we meet.

In Christ,


Very Rev. Mario Esposito, O.Carm.

“On October 2, 2018, I fell and fractured my skull and my brain was bleeding.  As a result, my left leg would not move. I spent 34 days between hospital and two rehabs.  When I was in the ICU, a Sister brought me a small picture of Mother Angeline and told me to pray to her and she would help me.  I prayed to her everyday asking for help.  I heard many disturbing stories as a result of brain injuries. Not able to walk, talk, memory loss and not being able to take care of oneself.  I did not have any of those results.  I truly believe that Mother Angeline healed me and I am so grateful to her.”

“I would like to relay a blessing in our life that I feel Mother Angeline may have had a part in. Our daughter and her husband have been trying to conceive a child for over two years and have had difficulty doing so. I have been praying to Mother Angeline since that time for her and her husband to have a baby…and that prayer was answered. I was so thrilled to learn of Mother Angeline’s cause for Sainthood several years ago because my mother’s cousin, Sister Christine, was part of the Order until she went to Our Lord in 2014. Just as Mother looked out for our cousin in her early years in the Order, I am confident that Mother is now also willing to look out for some of Sister Christine’s family. My daughter did indeed receive many prayers from many people during her struggle but I am convinced that Mother’s intercession was a key factor given our family’s connection to your Order.”

“I was speaking to a man JB this morning from the townland of Drummurrer in the parish who told me that he had a growth on his face below his left eye some time ago. He visited his local doctor who made an appointment for him with a consultant in Belfast but the man also went to the shrine of Mother Angeline in Brocagh and took home some Holy Water from her Baptismal font. He rubbed this water on his face every day and when he finally met the doctor in Belfast the doctor told him there was no sign whatsoever of his ailment on his face! The man (JB) truly believes he had a favor from Mother Angeline.”
