Mother M. Angeline Teresa, Carmelite - On the Road to Sainthood
Mother M. Angeline Teresa, Carmelite may be on the road to sainthood. Here is the latest news from DailyRecord.com
PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) — Roman Catholics in New Jersey have launched a miracle investigation that could lead to sainthood for the late founder of the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm. Bishop Paul Bootkoski opened the Diocese of Metuchen's probe on Monday.
At issue is whether Mother Mary Angeline Teresa McCrory answered the prayers of a parishioner. Carmelite Sisters superior general Mother Mark Louis Randall says the possible miracle involves a family who prayed to McCrory after their unborn child was diagnosed with a genetic abnormality. Randall says the defect was not present in the degree it had been expected when the child was born.
McCrory's New York home diocese in Albany has investigated her life and sent information to the Vatican. Two miracles must be verified for sainthood before a person can be canonized.
The 91-year-old died in 1984.
