What I have, I give to you. - Acts 3:16

I believe that God reveals the face of the beautiful ordinary: love, laughter, crying, and rejoicing. All the essentials of human life are found in the extraordinary ordinary.

As a long-time teacher and principal at Our Lady of Fatima, Holy Ghost, and Navajo Elementary Schools in New Mexico and in the Albuquerque Public School System, Sister Ada serves through education, seeking answers and opportunities for students, teachers, and parents in this district where many live with the challenges of economic deprivation. She often finds herself contemplating the great divides between wealth and position — and poverty and position. Where does prosperity live where there is injustice?

“I have experienced much joy in seeing children and young adults experience true freedom because of their educational accomplishments. In this way, I can contribute to the betterment of the world.”

In 1997, her 25-year Jubilee as a vowed Catholic Sister, she wrote: “I remain faithful to a great expectation that God’s fullness of life will fill the Earth.”

We come into this world naked and naked we will return to God.

Behold the rainbow and bless its maker.
