Venerable Mary Angeline Teresa

Mother Angeline started out as a member of the Little Sisters of the Poor order. She felt called to minister to elders who may or may not have been poor but were still lonely, sick and afraid so with the advice of Cardinal Hayes of New York she formed the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm. She admonished her nuns to "Be kinder than kindness itself to the old people."
This dear daughter of St. Teresa  passed away in 1984, and there is a cause for her beatification and canonization. Now this is a woman to emulate. You can visit the formation blog for the order here.
