Desires are a Gift from God
When we desire God, our desires are really coming from God and are a great gift that calls forth our gratitude. Here is another quote from Mother Stuart that I like:
"God hears our unuttered desires and as they are satisfied they grow...The more we desire and attain the more we shall desire, and the more attain....That is why our life is so immense.
I am still struggling with the new format for the blog; I find it a bit complicated compared to the old, but it seems to allow for many changes. I just need to figure them all out! Please be patient and do let me know if you prefer the large print or this print. I can only change to large, or largest or small and smallest. So today I am using "normal" but think large might be better. I await my readers comments on this!
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.
