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 below.  Finally, go visit other participants, and leave comments!  If you want a weekly reminder to post, join our yahoogroup.

Happy Thanksgiving.  I hope everyone had his or her fill of turkey and all the trimmings, along with a great time with family and friends.  We went to my dad's house and in the afternoon my youngest brother and my nephew came over for a visit.  Nephew and my youngest have a good time together and the adults enjoy watching them play together.  My big ones hide out in the back on TV or computer.

Today I am cooking.  I made enough meatballs to keep us for a couple of months; I taught my older daughter how to make an apple pie, I made homemade applesauce and will make banana bread and muffins.  Supper will be turkey soup.  I have peppers to stuff and I think I'm going to make some chili too--it is supposed to get cold tomorrow.

Tomorrow (or this afternoon) is the BIG CHANGE, the one that made the front page of the paper, the new translation of the mass.  I guess everyone will write about it either this week or next.  Unless I hear something unexpected, I personally think it is much ado about not much, but then I'm not a liturgist or a Latin expert.

So, what did you write about this week?  I read a Catholic book but the review is supposed to be approved before I publish it, so I guess you'll see it next week.  This week I published reviews of a romance novel, a romance anthology, a Christmas anthology, a cookbook and a Christian romance.  I mentioned you on my Top Ten Tuesday post.

  1. I don't have any plans to write about the transition b/c I also think it's much ado about, well, not very much, anyway (and I am a liturgist). But I imagine I'll be commenting on other people's blogs on the topic. :)

  4. Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Advent, RAnn! Thank you so much for hosting.
    This week, I have a video from EWTN,
    two prayer posts from Priests for Life, a thought on Thanksgiving, a couple of childhood memories, and
    some posts about books, including the usual book lists.
    Next week, I will probably blog about the new translation of the Mass,
    and my two collections.

    I am thankful to all my Catholic friends in the blogosphere who have engaged in such meaningful discussions on my blog. I am so excited for all you enjoying the new translation of the Mass today. Please share with me your thoughts and experiences. I would love to hear them!
