Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival

Happy New Year!  If any non-Catholics are reading this post, the reason I am saying Happy New Year is because tomorrow, Sunday, November 28, 2010, is the First Sunday of Advent, the first day of the 2011 liturgical year.  Advent is a time when we prepare spiritually for the coming of Christ.  Along with other bloggers, I'm participating in Catholic Roundup.com's Advent Calendar.  Just as the calendar you buy for use at home has small windows to open each day, so does this one, only you click on it rather than open it.  You can see the calendar here and my first post for it here--a list of links for families with kids.

I'd like to welcome everyone to Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival.  We are a group of Catholic bloggers who gather weekly to share our best posts with each other.  To particpate, go to your blog and create an entry titled Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival.  In it, highlight one or more of your posts from the past week that you believe would be of interest to Catholic bloggers---whether they are posts reflecting on spiritual matters or posts about antics of Catholic kids, or anything in between.  Use that post to link to your original posts, as I linked to the Advent posts above.   Come back here and enter the URL of that post into Mr. Linky.  Finally, go visit other participants, and leave comments!  If you want a weekly reminder to post, join our yahoogroup.

I reviewed three books this week:  Redemption by Karen Kingsbury, which deals with adultery in marriage; Sisters, Ink, which is about a woman who has to choose between a big city high-powered career, and small time life and love; and Still of the Night which is a romance about folks who were high school sweethearts until she got pregnant.

  2. First timer here! One of my "field trips" this past week (with no school) was to the Blessed Fr. Seelos Shrine in New Orleans. Pictures do not do it justice!

  15. I hope everyone enjoyed a wonderful time on Thanksgiving. The post I would most like to recommend is entitled Who are the Leavers which deals with the exodus of young adults from their religious upbringing.

    Many prayers for a blessed Advent for all!
