Off to St. Louis
This is my last blog until July 23, next Monday when I will be back to tell you all about my days in St. Louis with so many friends and making new ones as there are several RSCJs from Canada, Uganda, Australia, Indonesia, Philippines, Japan, Mexico, and Korea who I have yet to meet. What a gift to belong to an international society and be connected with so many countries; I think we are in 42 or 43 countries.
I leave today so will have time to see friends before the opening Liturgy tomorrow.
Have a good week and do check out some of the prayer resources listed on the right side of the blog.
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.
