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 thank all of you who kept my family in your prayers last week.  My dad is home from the hospital, and my sister, who took leave to look after him has headed home, figuring she isn't needed there.  My cousin had her surgery, and the biopsy came back negative.  While she doesn't see the cancer specialist until after the  first of the year, she has been told there is a possibility she won't even need chemo.

This week I participated in First Wildcard Tours for two books:  the first is an oldie but goodie--Scott Hahn's Lamb's Supper; the second is a new study guide that can be used by discussion groups or individuals.  I recommend them both.

Have a great week.  If next week's Sunday Snippets goes up, it will probably be on Sunday, not Saturday.  I wish all of you a very merry and holy Christmas.

  1. Hi, RAnn! I will continue to keep your family in my prayers.

    This week's theme was "hope" and featured Handel's Rejoice Greatly, Gerhartz' Dawn of Hope and Emily Dickinson's Hope is a Thing with Feathers.
    I also found a great website of Christmas pictures from the 1920's to the post WWII period.

    God bless.

  7. I'm disappointed Mr. Linky isn't working; it was very handy. I'm delighted have a link to drop this week, though: http://burned-bridges.net/contrariwise/2010/12/18/catholic-calendar-2011/

  12. Praise God for the news about your dad and cousin!

    The link for me is: http://bedlamorparnassus.blogspot.com/2010/12/sunday-snippets-catholic-carnival-for_19.html.

    Posts about Jesus and the Bible, the uniqueness of Mary and her grace, and what Aristotle and Aquinas have to say about educational testing.

  13. Well it seems I'm not the only one who cannot see Mr. Linky today.

    Here is my Sunday Snippets Blog Entry. This week I hit my 200th post so I wrote an entry about that, plus a bit of a public rant posting about an article I read in the Huffington Post.

    In all, I was able to put up 11 entries this week. That is pretty uncommon for me, but I was glad that I was to do it at least this week. There is a little bit of something for everyone.

    Thanks RAnn for your faithfulness in hosting Sunday Snippets.

    R'Ann, great news about your dad and your cousin!

    Have a great week, and thanks for hosting!
