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.  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 have several book reviews up this week, and invite you to look around while you are here.  One book I am publicizing this week is Unplanned which is written by a former Planned Parenthood executive who crossed the street to the pro-life center when she witnessed her first abortion.  Read about it here.  Another book many of you  may enjoy is Pearl in the Sand which is a fictionalized account of the life of Rahab, the Canaanite harlot who became a foremother of Jesus.  My review is here.

  4. Oh, that's very good to know about Unplanned. (The sneak peek, I mean.) I'll go check it out. It's hard to imagine that someone could work for any length of time for PP without processing the reality of abortion.

  5. Both books sound interesting to me. I wonder if I can get them at our library.

  6. It feels like forever since I've participated here! I hope you've all been well.

    You've reviewed some great books lately RAnn. Unplanned looks good and so does the Amish books. :)

    Happy Sunday.

  7. I posted the testimony of a priest in Iowa who has walked away from New Age/TM & is helping others, including a cousin of mine, do the same. This is a big problem that's infiltrated our church.

  8. Thank you for hosting, R'Ann. This week comes under the tag "life happens". Just one of those weeks. But God finds us in the crazy and the ordinary. Lucky for us!

    Looking forward to reading others' postings!

  11. Sorry I'm so late this week, RAnn! This week we talked about Z. Randall Stroop, John Michael Talbot, Robert Browning, the Baptism of Our Lord and Psalm 51. We also saw a very creative pair of painted tennis shoes.

  12. Thanks, from the land of ice and snow and snow and snow and more snow and... well you get the picture, for hosting RAnn. Also, that Unplanned book sounds really interesting. I'll have to check it out.

  15. I love reading about the Amish, and I'm definitely going to read "The Search".
    "Plain Girl" was my first book about the Amish, too. I really should get a new (used) copy; hardcover this time.
    New-used? There's an oxymoron!
