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. Use that post to link to your original posts, as I linked to the Advent posts above. 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'd like to ask for prayers. My dad is in the hospital with heart problems and I have some worried kids on my hands--and yea, I'm worried too. I went to see him today and he's doing better; they are going to do a heart catheterization Monday and then hopefully send him home Tuesday. He's in his early 80's and he's the only grandparent my kids have left. I also have a cousin who is scheduled for a bilateral mastectomy on Monday. She's not 40 yet and they found breast cancer. Finally, I've been working on a case that has been in the news here (see NOLA.com and search for Glover if you want to read about it) but the bottom line is for right or for wrong, our client was convicted and this father of five young kids is headed to prison for a long time. Please pray for him and his family.
With all that, I'm afraid I haven't been blogging much this week. I put up a couple of book reviews but frankly none of the books were anything special--not bad, just not particularly good.
