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.

No particularly Catholic posts this week.  I reviewed one book I highly recommend: The Goodbye Quilt.  I also reviewed The Lightkeeper's Ball (Christian romance), Lilly's Wedding Quilt (Amish Romance), Moonlight Cove (mass market romance, pretty clean) and Malled (memoir about working in retail sales).  I also wrote a post about writing negative book reviews.  Those of you who read book reviews, do  you like to see bloggers write negative reviews, or do you think we should just pass on writing about books we don't like?

  1. Just 3 posts for me this week. Happy blogging, everyone! And I hope you're having a spiritually fruitful Lent.

  2. Thanks for hosting! As to your ? about negative reviews - I think you should write a negative review when you happen to read a book you do not like. I just want the truth. Then I can make up my mind whether or not I want to read it for myself.
    This week I posted on a God -Incidence, Come to the Water and just some news about my writing. God bless!

  3. Thanks for hosting, as usual, RAnn.

    This week besides my weekly recipe, I offered 10 book suggestions for Lent and celebrated my son's 6th birthday. :)

  4. Two posts:

    Rags & Aprons, which continues the class begun last week in Bishops & Epidemics.

    and

    Nomad Church? Pilgrim Church? which covers the last couple of chapters in Revelations, and brings this year's Bible study to an end.

  5. My turn from arch-traditionalism and its controversies is nearly complete and chronicled in this week's posts.

  6. Hagia Sophia and The Art Institute of Chicago. An interesting combination, perhaps, but those were the posts from last week.

  8. Hi RAnn, thanks for 102 hosts of the Sunday Snippets!

    What else would I talk about during Lent, if not food?

  9. oops, I thought I left a comment yesterday. Must have gotten distracted.
    I just posted a short video I found recently called The Procedure. It's very powerful and be prepared for some tears.
    Thanks for hosting RAnn!

  10. It's been a long time since I joined the carnival. I work as a campus minister, and last week I posted about our spring break mission trip.

  13. Thank you, RAnn, once again for being our host.

    Seems like I spent the week blogging, but I did get out into the garden, before the winds kicked up and blew the fence over. Oh, well.

  14. Sorry so late this week! There are still 2 hours left in Sunday!

    We had a very moving painting called The Presence, a Lenten Medititaion, more of Gregory Petrov's prayer/poem and a post about National Poetry Month!
