Sunday Snippets: A Catholic Carnival

Another week of summer gone.  All too soon it will be time for school to start.  I'll admit it, I like the lazy days of summer when I don't have to oversee homework, get kids to meetings, or get to meetings myself. 

I have a couple of new giveaways this week--one is for a furry dog toy, which if you don't want you can ask to have sent to an animal shelter.  The other is for a handy pillow

I read one book I'd like to share with you.  It is about a drug addicted criminal who became a priest.  I really enjoyed No Turning Back and I think you will too.

What did you post about this week?  Create a post entitled "Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival and in it highlight your posts from this week.  Include a link to this post.  Then, sign Mr. Linky so we can all check it out.  Don't forget to visit other folks.  If you'd like a weekly reminder to post, join our yahoogroup.

  1. Thanks for sharing about that book. Can we copy that image for our Sunday Snippet post?
    This week I posted about a cute little "watchdog" and about trusting in God's love. God bless!

  2. Thank you for hosting.

    I have two posts this week, one on the passing of Fr. Lawrence Boadt, CSP, author of Introduction to the Old Testament from Paulist Press and the other is a meme of my three favorite prayers.

  4. Colleen, you may grab the image; you'll have to upload it to your post rather than having html to grab-I just haven't figured out the grab button yet. Nod, if you'd like the pillow, follow the directions to enter the giveaway; maybe you'll win.

  6. Talking of books ... is it OK to tell your readers they can collect my FREE E Book "Golden Drops" from my Blog? I hope they, and you, like it!

    God bless.

  7. No Turning Back sounds a little like the story of Father Corapi. It sounds really interesting.

  8. Wide range of posts this week, everything from St. Anselm to Dante to pulp fiction, from Alexander Pope to relativism in schools to a Christ-centered liturgy.

  10. Ran a series of articles that critique the theology of the body, which seems to be a "work in progress." Many different ideas to consider!

  14. EBeth--are you on the yahoogroup? I send out reminders every week--and if you aren't able to post on Sunday, do it Monday. Mary, I too found the book hard to put down. I finished it in about five hours.

  15. My post is one of a series I'm doing on my summer reading. Much of it I 'have' to read to keep up with what the teens must read before going to school in September.
