Today we celebrate the entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem with the people all welcoming and praising Jesus. Soon some of this same crowd will be stirred up to call out "Crucify him!" They will choose a criminal to be released instead of Jesus who was innocent of crime. It is a day to reflect on our own faith and fortitude as well as a day to enter into the feelings of Jesus as He begins this week that we now call "Holy"!
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.
