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 spent is morning following that wonderful American tradition: selling Girl Scout Cookies.  We were there for four hours and while I didn't count the cookies, I think we did pretty well.  I was planning to take my youngest out pulling a wagon full of cookies this afternoon, but it ended up storming.  They even cancelled one of the biggest parades of the year today because they didn't want people out in the weather waiting for it.  That was unfortunate for many churches and schools along the route.  Their big fund-raiser is parking cars and serving food before the parade.  Not only did the lose their profit, they probably purchased a lot of food that will not be sold.  Businesses in the area also took a hit.

If you browse around my blog, you'll see a lot of posts published this week--most of them are fluffy romances.  I would like to call your attention to my post about BYU.

  1. RAnn, thanks for hosting this every week! I liked your post on BYU.
    This week I posted on needing to slow down and This Day Will Never Come Again. God bless!

  2. One post of less than punitive length on the Last Supper.

  3. The ongoing series on Catholic vs. Protestant theology. Posts this week included Scripture, Baptism, and the Eucharist. Thanks to all who commented for your wonderful thoughts.

  4. RAnn, thank you so much for hosting.
    This week, I have:
    A post about how I was introduced
    to an artist whose works I love
    A bit of family history
    My plans for this Lent
    And, of course, my list of "Books
    Read In The Past Week."

  5. A single post. Thanks for doing this!

  6. Well, I don't think my latest post on tattoos qualifies. lol

    But, I'm going to hop over to your BYU post to read your thoughts.

    Best wishes with Sunday Snippets.

  7. I remember those days of selling girl scout cookies!

    I had a sort of recipe week at my blog this week. :)

  8. Thank you faithful host! Ditto on BYU - walkin' the talk!

  9. Thanks for hosting RAnn! I found your BYU post very interesting. Now if only we'd start doing that in the Catholic Schools. It's sad, we don't get scout cookies that often here. Although, to make up for it we do get scout popcorn.

  10. Thanks RAnn, as always!

    This week on Sunday Snippets, WBN presents: Sick of It. Because we're alternately amused, alarmed, and "over it".

    * Dr. Suess Does Star Wars
    * Coming Attractions
    * Sick Of It

  11. Reflections on daily readings this week, and some thoughts on the Communion of Saints.

  12. I forgot about this for a little while. It's so fun to share! I posted about "Inching towards sanity" and my journey so far on disability leave for 3 months with a severely broken ankle.
