Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival

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'd like to ask for prayers.  My dad is in the hospital with heart problems and I have some worried kids on my  hands--and yea, I'm worried too.  I went to see him today and he's doing better; they are going to do a heart catheterization Monday and then hopefully send him home Tuesday.  He's in his early 80's and he's the only grandparent my kids have left.  I also have a cousin who is scheduled for a bilateral mastectomy on Monday.  She's not 40 yet and they found breast cancer.  Finally, I've been working on a case that has been in the news here (see NOLA.com and search for Glover if you want to read about it) but the bottom line is for right or for wrong, our client was convicted and this father of five young kids is headed to prison for a long time.  Please pray for him and his family.

With all that, I'm afraid I haven't been blogging much this week.  I put up a couple of book reviews but frankly none of the books were anything special--not bad, just not particularly good.

  1. RAnn you have my prayers for your dad and the catheterization, your cousin, her surgery and recovery, and your client and his family. God bless them all. I'm praying for you, too; your plate is pretty full.

  6. My goodness, that's alot to turn over to the Lord, isn't it? Last night I was remembering OLOG's words to us today on her feastday: "Am I not here who am your mother? Are you not under my mantle, in the crossing of my arms? Do you need anything else?"
    Thinking of that always helps me a bit...I'll ask her to help you too!

    I guess I liked this post for the same reason: It helps me look at life from the perspective of heaven...

  15. Prayers for you and yours!

    Please pray for a friend of my SIL's who had surgery this week for stage 4 ovarian cancer. Seeking Fr. Seelos' intercession there.

    Also prayers for my friend who is dealing with family issues and estrangement at this time of year and another friend who is grieving the loss of her mother.

  16. Will pray for your dad, and for all of you.

    It has been the most zoo-ish of zoo-y two weeks, and I have not had time to put together a Sunday Snippets. Oh, well. I've been talking a lot about Advent, of course. :)

  18. So I thought I forgot something yesterday, but I just couldn't remember what it was until now. I put together my Sunday Snippets post on my blog yesterday afternoon, but forgot to come here to leave the link!
