Everliving God, in whose light we see light: We offer thanks for thy teacher and peacemaker Adelaide Case, who inspired generations of students with a love of learning that built up the Church and their communities. Grant that we, following her example, may serve thee tirelessly as learners and teachers, laboring for the transformation of the world toward thy reign of peace, through the companionship of Jesus thy Saving Word; who with thee and the Holy Spirit livest and reignest, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
