A Quick Note
I just heard that the Vatican is investigating and actually has appointed high-ranking officials to "reform" the Leadership Conference of Women Religious. This is upsetting to say the least. This is a group that looks to see how Jesus would act today.
I am going to pray about this before I write more. I also am going to look up a book that I had not heard about until today when a group has formed at the University to help deepen spirituality throughout the curriculum. The book is Charlene Spretnak’s Relational Reality, That's all for today as I am off to the University for Mass, Centering Prayer, and Faith-Sharing--all so life-giving for me!
Hello, my name is Helen Rosenthal, RSCJ. Those initials stand for Religious of the Sacred Heart in Latin, French, Italian, and Spanish. Since my religious congregation began in France in 1800 and now is all over the world, we have kept the RSCJ. By now you know that I am not only known as Dr. Helen Rosenthal, but also as Sister Helen Rosenthal.
I am the oldest of four children. We were all born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri. We lived in a big house with a playroom on the third floor. On Sundays we either went to my paternal grandmother's house where her six children would gather faithfully for supper or we would have my mother's father and our great aunt and uncle for a roast beef dinner at home. In summer, I would go to the lake with my Dad and I still love to swim.
