Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival

Well, they say all good things must end, and unfortunately tonite a very good thing ended; the New Orleans Saints' hopes for an undefeated season.  As they say though, wait until next time!

Hi, and welcome to another edition of Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival. We are a group of bloggers who gather once each week to share out best posts. We are all Catholic and blog at least somewhat about Catholic things; some do so exclusively, others only periodically. All are welcome to participate here.

To join in the fun, go to your blog and create a post titled Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival. In that post describe and link to any posts you want to share with the rest of us. Also put in a link to this post. Then come back here, and sign Mr. Linky and give us a link to your post. Finally, go visit other people's posts, and leave comments! Some folks who don't post often have asked if they could, rather than creating a special "Sunday Snippets" post, just link their original post to Mr. Linky. That's ok, if your original post includes a link back here; since the idea is to share our posts and readers with each other. Encourage your readers to join us too.

If you want a weekly reminder to post, please subscribe to our yahoogroup.

I do a semi-regular feature called "From My Reader" in which I link to posts that catch my eye while I am going through my Google Reader.  A couple of them this week were about things Catholic.

I read to my five year old on a regular basis but rarely review kids books unless they are sent to me for that purpose.  However, one she brought home from school was good enough to share, so I did.  It is a Christmas  ABC book.

A novel about a haunted rectory may be pushing the definition of "Catholic" however, I enjoyed the book and thought you might too.  The author, Katherine Valentine, has a new book featured on the Catholic website.

May you and yours have a very merry and blessed Christmas!


  1. Too bad about the Saints, but I thought you meant about the blog. Whew! Thanks for hosting RAnn!

    Should you have another piece of pie? Should you keep that money you found? How can we know right from wrong? And just what the heck is truth anyway?

  2. Thanks for hosting! I posted two posts - One is a song and video and the other one about my prayer to Jesus after a hard day. God bless!

  3. Since I'm writing a book on Advent, I'm always interested to see what people post on the subject. Last week I had my "novels" critique group look at my book, since it's what I have to share. What I discovered is that non-Catholics consider Advent and Christmas to be one and the same. I find this disheartening. Anybody else?

    It may be heartening from the standpoint of an opportunity to evangelize. The ignorance among non-Catholics and Catholics as well just means our world is deep in ignorance of salvation history, so this may be a great way to help you with your book. Now you know more questions people need answered.

  5. Sorry, Kathleen, my computer took me away from the identification section before I could leave my name. I'm not anonymous.

  6. Thanks.
