Rosa Valencia was born in Juanajuato, Mexico. As a child, Sister Rosas’s abusive father neglected her; her mother and her found comfort in the Catholic church. At the age of 14, Rosa began working in various places to provide for her mother and herself. She worked basically as a social worker specializing in helping the youth drug addicts and prostitution. That is her passion is helping others blossomed.
One of Rosa’s close friends tried to take their own life. Rosa succeeded in preventing the suicide and took her friend to a convent. Once she discovered the convent life, she fell in love and felt that it was her calling to be a nun. From there she felt her life truly began. That day forward, all of her salaries and wages she would donate to the poor and needy. She gave her all to children living on the streets. When she did not work, she would visit jails to give mates hope for their soul.
To this day, Sister Rosa will not even eat before knowing everyone else has. She is the most compassionate person I have ever met.
For many years now, she has suffered from severe backs pains, diabetes, high pressure, and has problems with her thyroid. Yet, this woman works nonstop. Most days she works 7 AM to 2 AM, she oversees programs in 2 churches and is in charge of financially sustaining her home (she lives with 3 other nuns).
Thank you for your time.
