Very Reverend Mario Esposito, O.Carm. and the Carmelite brothers from Saint Eliseus Priory in Harrison, NJ celebrated Sunday Vigil and Mass at St. Teresa's Motherhouse in Germantown, NY. The Easter Vigil was followed by fellowship and sharing of "talents" ranging from song renditions from our Carmelite Brothers and novice in English and Vietnamese and a laugh or two from a collection of church bloopers! We also heard some Easter reflections excerpts taken from the Circular Letters of our Foundress, Venerable Mary Angeline Teresa, to remind us of the heart and soul of our vocation as Carmelites. As part of the Easter customs, Easter baskets of goodies were also distributed.  We try to remember that Easter is not about the bunny but about the Lamb!
