Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival

With spring comes a wonderful New Orleans tradition--the church fair. Today I spent two hours doling out tickets and armbands for the rides at ours. Original predictions were for the weather to be bad this weekend, but we've dodged the bullet and it looks like we'll do well. However I'd like to ask everyone to pray for the folks around Yazoo City Mississippi and other parts of the south which were hit by tornadoes today. Deaths have been reported and of course, property damage.

I'm starting to get back to book blogging and this week I reviewed Encounter with Mercy, a book about confession. I'd also invite you to read my interview with Dr. Elaine Whitty about the Black-White achievement gap in our schools. I have a couple of other book reviews so feel free to poke around while you are here.

It was late last night when I wrote this post, and I forgot Mr. Linky. Here he is:
