The emergence of Christ depends on our capacity to love...
This is another one of my thoughts probably taken from Delio's book on "The Emergent Christ."
You see, God's plan for creation includes each of us; it is by my conscious and creative activity that I help keep the world evolving and developing in the way God wants it to and God is Love and so my capacity to love has something to do with the emergence of Christ. The love of God is poured out into our hearts by the Holy Spirit. Do I really realize this?
I am caught up in the evolution of the entire universe. God created me in and through an expanding, evoling universe that has one purpose: to unify all in the Cosmic Christ.
Tomorrow, I think I will try to get back to some reflections that I left unfinished at the end of June.
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.
