Very Reverend Mario Esposito, O.Carm.
Dear Members of the Mother Angeline Society –
Peace be with you, and holy joy on this Easter Sunday, 2020. Although our world and all of us are struggling with the Coronavirus pandemic, nevertheless, Easter proclaims loud and clear for us the Resurrection of Our Lord, new life, healing and hope. Venerable Mother Angeline Teresa loved the liturgy and in her spirit, the Sisters in the Motherhouse were able to celebrate the various liturgies of the Triduum and Easter in a reserved, but joyful and beautiful way, and I was able to lead the Masses and services. As people of faith, we need to strive to always respond first with trust in God, as well as gratitude for the abundance of His grace and mercy. Jesus has healed us by His death, and granted us new life in His resurrection. This is the Easter proclamation.
Let us continue to support our Carmelite Sisters as they labor intensively and with many challenges to provide for God’s elderly during this pandemic. Every Carmelite Home is working diligently to care for the Aged and Infirm, to protect and comfort them under difficult circumstances. Please keep the Sisters, staff and residents in your good prayers.
Happy Easter to you. God bless you, and Venerable Mary Angeline Teresa, pray for us.
Father Mario Esposito, O.Carm.
